    I recently picked up a pair of HP-cobranded iPods and have a couple of questions about stickers that are on them.

    The first is a 4GB iPod Mini. On the back is a hologram sticker with a pair of 3-digit numbers. Anybody seen something like this before and, if so, what was it supposed to designate?

    The other is a 20GB 4th gen iPod. This one has a mostly unreadable sticker below the serial number (where a normal iPod has information about voltage, etc.). Out of curiosity, I was wondering what the difference was between the text on the label and the normal text underneath.

    Thanks...

    I had this same iPod, a 20GB 4th gen monochrome screen. There was no sticker below the serial number, as it came from Apple. My guess is that a prior owner put that sticker there.

    Definitely factory as the little bit I can read is the voltage information. My best guess would be that there is some replacement for the normal "Designed by Apple in California Assembled in China Model..." text.

    Unfortunately I don't have a definitive answer, but if memory serves me correctly these iPods weren't only co-branded with HP - HP also provided the servicing for them. It's possible the number is for use with HP's customer service system.
