Very cool! Any hints anywhere as to when we can expect to
see that on the market?

No, not yet. There's a lot of behind the scenes work still going on. The
blank media has to be ready, too, and all of the IP interests served, etc.

Actually, I hadn't read far enough into the article. It
says 2006 but that's pretty broad. Think it could be any
sooner?

Dr. Bronner's snack food products??? That sounds scary. I thought
they just sold snake oil.

I told everybody there'd be a new video disk format three years ago when
movie-swapping began. If swapping can't be slowed down significantly using
technology, the funding of new motion picture production is likely to
completely go away.

Their soap used to be great until they reformulated it. The older
"castille soap for babies" had very low residue and was great for cleaning
78s, but they have reformulated them all with hemp oil and added some sort
of scent to the baby soap. The residue level is much higher and they don't
lather as well in the shower either.

But in addition to this stuff, Dr. Bronner makes a line of really wretched
snack foods, sold as HEALTHY HUNZA FOOD. Most health food stores will carry
the soap, but nobody wants to carry the snack food items.
