The 'I didn't know this' file

Here's a new one from the 'I Didn't Know That' file. According to an article on Yahoo, most major computer companies will pick up your old computer and dispose of it/recycle it. Many of them for free. They say they'll shred the hard drive so there's no worries over someone stealing your info, but that it's still a good idea to erase vital information. I just traded my old computer to someone else for something I wanted, so it wasn't an issue, but this is a great thing to know for the future. Some companies charge a nominal fee, but Dell will take it for FREE. Yay Dell.
