    I haven't used my Apple Stickers for my Macbook Air yet. Do any of you have problems with residue wherever you stuck your apple stickers that came with your iPad, iPhone ,iPod, Mac? I wanted to put some apple stickers in my locker but they said no stickers because of the residue. I had an apple sticker stuck to the back of my iPod touch about a year ago and I think it did leave some residue but I rubbed it off.

    Since they're normal stickers they do leave residue but you can simply use rubbing alcohol or googone to get it off.

    minimal residue I would think. Depends also on how long it's on there.
    I think it gets more sticky over the years (assuming you don't upgrade next month).

    I would say though: Throw the tacky sticker in the trash like 99.9% of us do.

    Just a suggestion :)

    Ummm, the sticker is not meant to be put on the laptop, is it? :confused: I missed that memo. I mean, the laptop already has a beautiful Apple logo on it, so why would I put a sticker on it as well?

    I thought the sticker was for the car, the fridge, the bicycle, the <insert your other non-apple favorite gadget here> to let everyone know you were an Apple fan. My 2007 Jeep Wrangler with 35" tires looks very cool with a little white Apple on the back... :cool:

    I wouldn't put this anywhere. It's advertising that you have an expensive item nearby. Perhaps, you carry cash? ;)

    I just got my locker stuff today and they didn't have anything to decorate. I guess just putting an apple sticker in my locker would be kinda weird looking.

    We have the Apple sticker adorning our office microwave.

    I think there's a Windows XP sticker on the coffee machine.

    Ah - engineering humour...
