Curmudgeonly Thought

If I were in the CD selling business, and I were concerned about losing sales to things like MP3 downloads, whether legal or illegal, I think I would make it a little easier to open the seal along the top of the CD when folks brought them home from the shops.

Just sayin'….

OK, now to find a band-aid to cover up the puncture in my thumb from stabbing myself with the sharp object that failed to remove the #$&** barcode/title sticker on the top.

    Here’s a trick for you:

    Once the shrink wrap is off, just unhinge the cover and swing it up on the “hinge” of the barcode sticker. It is easily removed at this point. Quicker than cutting it, easier, and not dangerous.

    Around here the glue they use is so strong that doesn’t usually work. The case starts to flex and looks like it is going to break.

    ??? I open the same CD packaging you do… Just slip a fingernail underneithe the lower plastic hinge, so you can unhinge the cover, swing it upwards (it will now be hinged only on the flexible bar code strip across the top that you want gone), at that point the barcode strip is easily dealt with. Works well on every CD I’ve ever opened. If you’re flexing anything other than the plastic hinge momentarily to unhinge it, then you’re not doing what I’m describing – apparently badly.
