I just tried to register my Macbook and Time Capsule online.

When it got the end of the process it said it would like to offer me one of two 'gifts' for registering my products, I think it was a few issues of MacWorld and some other magazine. 'No thanks', I thought, 'I don't need anything delivered to my home, killing trees and all that, plus getting plugged into that whole magazine list trading world.

Anyways, I don't think they give you a chance to say no, they only give you a chance to select one of two magazines. I panicked at that point and started to his the back page button and regretted trying to register my products. I've got receipts anyways, and I've signed up with AppleCare and they seem to have the serial number of my mac when I call for support so maybe the product registration process is a red herring anyways just to get you to pick between to Apple magazines.

Am I wrong? Was there a way to opt out of getting one of two magazines when you register your products? If there isn't that was the first time dealing with Mac was unpleasant and greasy. If there is a way, never mind.

Cheers
