@The NYC Toy fair 2008 I saw this ironic puzzle game, it’s meant to give kids/adults a puzzle challenge (roll ball unlocks the box) before they can open a DVD, CD, book, money – getting packaging open is usually a challenge already – but I thought it was funny how modern media companies like to lock out their customers on just about everything or make it a “puzzle” for hackers to “fix” some decision – this is a physical version of the cat and mouse game that I think is playing out… If you’re clever enough you too can get past the DRM :) — maybe Magnif should play on that theme for fun.
