Blind spot - the trouble with optical drives

encasement

Didn't panasonic/matsushita already do this or tried some kind of caddy system (still got my 1x panasonic cdrom in the loft somewhere), I'm pretty sure you can buy DVD-RAM discs in caddies too. I reckon its all down to cost cutting, I mean 1 DVD-R disc costs about 12p how much more would it cost if it was incased in a caddy, I'm guessing by atleast 8x, but the difference wouldn't be so much with a 50Gb blueray recordable media probably not even a 20th of the cost of the disc.

fobbed

The transponder fob idea's not bad and could mean no more need to remember any passwords, plus if you walk away from the laptop/pc the computer would autolock and unlock as you aproach.
