This is a couple days old by now, but Jennifer Stoddart announced an audit of Staples that showed that it was still selling electronics that had been returned without wiping the devices first. This means if you returned that laptop to Staples they probably resold it with your personal info still on it. The privacy commissioner says this is unacceptable. Moral of the story: make sure you wipe your old electronics yourself.
