One of my biggest pet peeves are all the stickers that laptop / tablet pc OEMs plaster on the wrist pad of their computers: AMD, Intel, Wacom, Vista, Joe’s Diner – you name it, it’s on there. Come on OEMs – my computer is not on the NASCAR circuit and I don’t remember signing a contract giving you permission to advertise on it. HP, Dell, and Toshiba – I’m looking at you!

Needless to say, the stickers are normally the first things to go when I prep a new computer. Sometimes, the stickers are really easy to peel off. Other times, though, it takes a lot of effort to get all the sticky glue off. Point in case – I just spent an hour removing two stickers from a friends Dell computer. Over the years, I’ve learned that Krud Kutter and WD-40 are the best liquids to cut through all that glue.

What about you? What do you use take back your wristpad?
