You're really out of touch lol. Everything is wrapped with care nowadays. Aqua wraps their blocks in thick plastic wrap, EK bags them in thick plastic, XSPC in foam bags with dense foam packing, and same with Alphacool.
Yup! For further reference, you could check out unboxing videos on youtube. I usually have one or 2 playing, and mute the sound. If anything catches my eye, then I investigate. biggrin.gif
One of the benefits of unboxing videos (I've found) is you get a feel for how the company treats their lines of products, and how they package them.

Have you EVER had newspaper in ANY product you buy? We're not talking about a package from dear ol' granny that uses newspaper to wrap things. This is a company.

What does the paper have to do with the actual product? I've no idea how it was packed, did it have chinese newpaper as packing or was inside the box? Is it against the law to read chinese newspapers or to use it to pack with?? Regardless, is it shocking to find chinese paper in something coming from China? And stuff I've ordered direct from China has been packed in whatever paper they probably had laying which incidentally was chinese.

It's inappropriate to include it. What other random crap might they throw in? Go anywhere to ship a package and I guarantee you that not one will use newspaper. I would be unhappy if Amazon or Newegg included the New York Post. It poorly reflects on the company.
