This DVD Will Now Self-Destruct

Good day, Mr. Phelps. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to read this article with a close eye, because one day, you could be dealing with self-destructive DVDs. A German company has designed a new type of DVD, called an Einmal (German for “once”.)

These new DVD’s can only be watched for 48 hours, before a special chemical coating on the discs makes viewing impossible. There doesn’t seem to be a DRM method on these discs, so if you’re super speedy, you can manhandle yourself a copy, but after the 48 hours are up, so is your DVD viewing window. This post will self-destruct in 10 seconds. Good luck. — Andrew Dobrow
