    I very much agree with your comments on refurbished Apple products. I have purchased a 17″ iMac, a 12″ iBook, an iPod Nano, and an iPod Touch so far, all refurbs. I had a minor problem with the iBook and everything else has worked flawlessly.

    As you said, you have a new product warranty, eligibility for Apple Care. I like to buy refurb products because I feel that any flaws have been discovered and corrected.

    In regards to the paper labels on the cd I was told that when a classified label is put on a disc another one must be placed on the opposite side to to ensure the balance of the cd when it is being read. Once the cd is no longer need they will use a razor to “peel” the label off which will also take the top layer of cd which can then be shredded. I am told there is not approved way to shred a disk. So using a razor to get a label off and to keep the data is not suggested.

    Keep up the great work Adam and I look forward to all the great information on your podcasts!
