    Any one here got an iPod Video Box that they bought from the apple store, or apple.com? If so please let me know, got a question. Thanks.

    It's from the apple store or apple.com right?

    Can you tell me what the UPC is?
    you can pm if you prefer.

    Edit: It needs to be a 30 GB white version as well. Forgot to mention this earlier.

    I might be able to give that to you. What do you need it for?

    I bought an iPod video about a short while ago from Bestbuy which I have opened and loaded up. I just received one as birthday gift as well. ( didnt think I would, so I went and bought one.) The new on came form apple.com, and I was just going to return it to best buy, as it is unopened, and they can just resell it, rather than sticking them with an opened, used iPod.

    I didnt know if apple used different upc codes for products sold by them / retailers. I know compaq had completely different model #s depending on if you bought it form them or in a Brick & mortar store. I was hopin to get some info before I walked in to Best Buy and looked like a fool if they are different.

    If you just say you got it as a gift: you can't look like an idiot, because you wouldn't know where they bought it.

    Sounds fishy, like someone wants a $100 discount on a 60GB.

    EDIT: Sorry for expecting the worst. Wouldn't you want to know what the Best Buy UPC is then? I have one of those....

    EricNau's suggestion is a good one too. You could tell 'em you got both of 'em as birthday gifts.

    no its actually legit. I have to bby box with me, but the new one I dont. I was just curious. I can return the opened one at any time, but I was just tryin to be nice. (if you can call it that.) The iPod would be sealed if I return it, the UPC is under the plastic, so no scam. But thanks for thread crapping. I can compare the two when I get home, I was just curious now. Its not a big deal.

    Edit: actually that article is pretty funny.

    yo.. i can see why it sounds fishy... if someone calls and asks for your credit card number you just dont give it to them... it does sound a little fishy too but i am sure if it was explained a little more we could understand, so yeh....jerk ;)

    Sheesh! I knew I should have put a smiley in there. I was only partly serious, just an excuse to link to the recent /. article.

    At least the Koodauw found the link amusing. :)
