I don't get it !

Seriously, seeing how trivial it is to change the admin password when you have access to an OS X install disk, I just don't understand why Apple needs your password. I've had 2 serious repairs done on an iBook, both serviced by a reseller (not Apple), the first one was a motherboard swap, the second a change of optical drive. I've never been asked for any password. Only the 2nd time I had a post-it note on the machine giving me the new password that had been changed by the technician so he could test the new drive. The only time I could see a need for a password is if you've enabled it in the firmware.
