What's wrong with just breaking the cd in 2 and tossing it in the trash? Or
if your a "girly man" (just a joke) just scratch the data layer. Unless you
are doing top secret government work for a foreign nation nobody is going to
even try piecing the thing back together with high tech gear. $130 is just a
bit pricey for a cd shredder in my opinion. Oh, and for those who like to
nuke things that should not get nuked, does your food taste a bit strange
after you blast metal ions and pieces of carcinogenic polymer around in your
food warming machine?
