If ever there was a case that truly justified the overused expression “We can put a man on the moon but we can’t… whatever”, this is it.
We can put a man on the moon but we can’t make CD cases that don’t self destruct on contact.
Since their inception in 198- CD cases have been ass. I’m talking specifically about the “jewel case” which is by far the most common and if you own any CDs at all chances are 98% of them have this design.
Bizarrely, despite their numerous and obvious flaws, there has never been any significant advances in CD case technology. The cases that were first mass produced in the early 80’s are exactly the same as the ones we still use today.
