Default Scratch Resistant Discs

Wear and tear can reduce optical discs' resistance to data loss. Scratches and scuffs from putting a CD on a desk or tabletop can shorten the storage media's secure lifespan. Now Scratch-Less Disc Industries has introduced a safer CD-R: a disc with 20 small "Aero-Bumps" that elevate the disc to avoid direct contact with drive or desktop.

Priced at about $1 apiece from various direct-order vendors, the Scratch-Less Disc also has an added polymer coating that gives a glass-hard layer of protection. Another feature is the "Easy-Up Edge," a slanted or raised edge that makes it easy to pick up the disc from a flat surface.

The company says it will add CD-RW media to its CD-R offerings soon, with DVD media to follow in the first quarter of 2006. Credit: Hardware Central

why couldn't they have this idea at the start of dvd's and cd's? and wouldn't the slanted edge be better if it was down from the beginning of cd's and dvd's?
