Just as burning a girlfriend a CD will never be as romantic as making her a mix tape, so too will sharing pirated software prove a heartfelt disappointment on anything but floppy. So one (genius?) designer has made CD-Rs that look like 3.5" floppies. At $8 apiece (for 200MB) in packs of 4, they aren't the best bang… » 12/04/07 10:40am 12/04/07 10:40am
