Recertified ipod came with a virus

ipod nano

Ina Fried bought a $99 recertified 4gb iPod Nano from buy.com. The ipod contained a virus (that thankfully was caught by antivirus software).

That iPod didn’t come from apple, it was recertified by an unidentified company in Illinois and supposedly buy.com checked and it was not a widespread problem.

As with any good deal online: caveat emptor (“buyer beware”).
