Nephrite writes: A German company has introduced a disposable DVD that can be viewed for 48 hours, then thrown away. The DVDs will sell for just 3.99 ($6.44
So, it's about the same price as a new video rental in Europe — and it used to be about the same price as in US, until the Mighty Dollar turned into the Pygmy Dollar. But there are no late fees and no need to pop the disk in the post or return to the store. This opens up DVD distribution possibilities for new premium-priced movie releases — to petrol stations, convenience stores, coffee shops and the like, as well as online retailers — as there is no longer the need to book the DVDs back in. That's the idea. Will it work?
