maximiliaanfirst of all, my english is not perfect but im trying to explain it all.
if you go to a store and buy for example an imac, you have 14 days or whatsoever to return it. the thing is now, the shop has an imac wich is almost brand new but the box is already opened so the value is lower than then a imac in an unopened box. they will send the imac back to the factory so they could check everything out if it all is ok, but to check the imac out is a lot more expensive than fabricate a brand new one so the old one needs to get destroyed (in the eyes of the factory it is the only way). i dont know all the details but the shop loses less money by turning it back to the factory (destroying it) then selling it again.
now these were imacs max 14 days old (used) but when the shop didnt sell a lot of (for example) 2013 imacs and the 2014 imacs came in the shop, they would manage to fake buy them en returning them to the factory wich leads to pallets full of brand new imacs ready to be destroyed by me and my mentally retarded friend Rudy.
the fun part of this all is that the section i worked in was called envicare with big recycling icons everywhere and everything for the environment, while meanwhile all the plastic, iron paper boxes and other stuff went in one big container ready to get trucked to the dumping lot.
BombogenesisDamn. We need stories.
What a weird job.
.Hugo.Why wouldn't they just sell them at a discount.... They'd lose way less money
