Looks like Chris Pirillo and I aren't the only ones writing about the idiocy behind the crazy blister packaging that can cleave off a digit when you go to open a package. The Washington Post has an article on the dangerous practice today. All I can say is two words: Package Shark.
Actually I'll say one more thing. Make every executive of every company that sells a product with the blister packaging surrounding it to protect their profits, open the packaging of their products themselves.
