And at the Other End of the Spectrum...

...we have the first disposable drugstore digital camera. This will likely be the new "winner" in the volksphoto arena.

The line that scares me says something like:

" after processing can be recycled "

Or in other words, this is an easy way for them to make a lot more
money. It probably won't be too long before "hacks" arrive to
read and delete the pictures yourself I'd say.

I can see why they would do it, but it's a weird idea non-the-less.

Ritz had a disposable digital camera out over a year ago. It used a "proprietary connection" and "proprietary code" to force the user to bring the camera back to Ritz to have the images processed. It took some guy about 2 weeks to crack the code and make the necessary cable out of parts from Radio Shack. Ritz pulled the camera
