CD-Rom Shredder

Inventor: Royal

Dumpster divers who make a living from personal information pulled from the trash don't care what form it comes in—paper, plastic or floppy disc. So why not play it safe? The MD 100 Media Destroyer is a paranoid's dream come true. It flattens raised numbers on old credit and ATM cards before cutting them to ribbons. It shreds a CD in about four seconds, reducing it to shards too small to be used for any kind of data recovery. It slices right through floppy discs, metal clips and all. You have to fold letter-size paper before feeding it through the 5-in. slot, but at least you don't have to remove the staples first.
