Flexplay disposable DVDs coming to Staples

flexplay Remember Flexplay DVDs, the self-distructing DVDs that would expire after 48 hours?

They’re back and Staple’s is getting them.

Once the discs are exposed to oxygen, a slow chemical reaction begins and 48 hours later the disc is unreadable.

Are they serious? What a waste.  Are they recyclable? Yes, but isn’t the point to reduce the amount of waste we create?

With most other providers looking at streaming content as the future, I’m a bit surprised to see this coming out on a day other than April 1st.
