Figured I'd combine them into one. So I just purchased my brand new iPad on Friday while I was home for the weekend in tax-free NH. Score, right? Well, not so much--I noticed one stuck pixel last night. I wouldn't ordinarily complain, but it's bright green and stands out on my wallpaper, and I really like my wallpaper, and if I'm paying $500 for it you better bet your behind I'm going to do my best to get a perfect one. So yeah. Anyways I'm back in NY with the horrendous 9% sales tax, and I made an appointment to get the iPad even exchanged (since I'm still within the 14 day policy). My question is as such: when I return it, with the receipt, within the 14 days, will I be required to pay sales tax on the new iPad? Common sense says no, but the evil wanna-be lawyer in my head is leaning towards "You're screwed." I don't really have $50 to be dropping on sales tax, not when I just spent $500 on the foolish thing. My other questions is this: I purchased several books for iBooks, will I be able to easily get them back? Same for the apps; I made all my purchases through the iPad because I've had issues with syncing just one file type in the past (deletes everything regardless of sync status, tons of fun). Another question: what's the most secure way I can wipe the old iPad?
