Absurdly Decadent Business Cards

I know you have to spend money to make money, but I don’t think these cards, at about £1,000 ($1,534) each, are a smart investment.

Mercenary Navy Coming Soon

The Somali Pirate situation has gotten so out of hand that insurance companies are starting their own navy.

CDs and DVDs Not Worth Stealing

It seems that in Britain, burglars aren’t bothering to steal CDs and DVDs.  Why?

The reason is the falling value of physical media products. The average price of a CD album in Britain fell from £10.77 to £7.32 between 2001 and 2010, according to the BPI, a trade group—almost a halving, in real terms. And the dishonest get their music and films free, via the internet. DVDs are under pressure not just from piracy but also from video-on-demand services.

Instead they’re stealing computers, purses, jewelry, and anything else that has greater value.  Technology has disrupted traditional thievery as well.
