Stupid CD cases

Don’t you hate it when the JEWEL cases have those two round pimples or VERTICAL stripes to keep the manual in? Especially the second one tears and scratches the booklet. The flat horizontal type is the best, because they don’t chip the booklets. It’s so pissing off to find new CDs in the mail with chipped and whitened booklets.

What reason is there for the horizontal bars to not be the universal design?

It’s simple:
The company that makes those ‘pimpled’ cases also makes scanners, image editing software, printer paper & printers.
That way, when your booklet is torn, you can scan it, repair the image, load a sheet of paper, & print out a replacement booklet.
Guess who makes the replacement ink cartridges when yours run out?
LOL-Just kidding!

That’s funny, but I think that there may be some conspiracy against it. Else experience for over 2 decades would have told the consumers and the sellers that the type here

Is the best, and even it can damage the booklet in some cases.

So the lesson is, to make the booklets out of tougher paper, gloss it or something. And then ROUND the edges of the riseups, and use the flat horizontal type.

Because the booklets are not packaging, they are a part of the product. I think there is a conspiracy of corporations to want you to buy new CDs, the “audiophiles” probably care about every part that comes with the CD, like the Jewel case card etc… Any thing damaged is no longer “collectible”.
