those Verbatim Multicoloured Lightscribe CD-Rs are really hard to get. I'm told Verbatim won't have any non-allocated stock until January or February, and it's been that was since October
They probably worked out another deal with Best Buy where they'd get them first. I'll have to swing by there this week and pick up a pack.
Not on this one, when they do things like that, the product doesn't appear on their price list that goes out to their distributors. The coloured lightscribe is and has been on the price list for many months, and I can easily order some myself, but there's no chance I could actually expect to see any until probably late January at the soonest. When the DVD+RDL 20pk first came out, it was a Bestbuy US exclusive for at least a month or two, before anyone was able to order it. Since then however, my workplace has easily gone through several thousand spindles of the stuff
