Fuji 48x "Glow In The Dark" Discs

Perhaps I'm missing the point here, but why would you want a glow in the dark disc?

Glow-In-The-Dark Condoms: sure, why not? (keep it clean, it's a family forum).

But CD-R's ?

I found the disc information here: http://www.fujifilmmediasource.com/cdr.asp
e6400 Core 2 Duo @ 2.13ghz
GeForce 7600GT 256mb PCI-e
2gb DDR2 667mhz Patriot ram 1.8v in d/c
Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 F10 BIOS
WD Caviar SE16 250GB SATA300 7200RPM 16MB Buffer
Samsung SATA2 80gb 7200rpm
Samsung SH-S182D 18x DVD burner

I remember seeing glow in the dark cassettes but never saw the reason for them except they looked cool, and the novelty value quickly wore off.

The only purpose I see for glow in the dark CD-R's is that they make it eaiser to find and swap CD's while driving at night. Or maybe for club DJ's who work in dark places.

Its strange that Fuji are putting these out - this sounds like something Memorex or a obscure CD-R company would do. I wonder who makes them? Taiyo??

Just another marketing scheme to jack up the price of CD's. Sadly enough, some people will buy these discs because they "look cool" although they are the same quality as every other Fuji disc.

I agree that those two reasons are the only ones that would make the glow in the dark disc useful. Most of the time the CD is in the player and you can't even see the colors glowing, so there's no point to that.

Just another Marketing gimmick.

Also, some newer boomboxes have transparent cd covers, so that also makes these discs attractive.
