This is an abomination that just cannot be tolerated.

Getting those in a parcel is like getting a double yoked egg or two gifts in a cereal box.

Thank your lucky stars Apple doesn't make it, or it wouldn't be compatible to wrap non Apple Products!

I have the remainder of a large roll of bubble wrap at home, I wonder if I should sell it on Trade Me at an inflated price because the looming shortage of poppable bubble wrap. money-mouth

I honestly didn't deliberately drop that pun.

My greatest dilemma would be how to protect the roll during shipping.  I guess I'd need to find some sort of protective wrapping for it.

Yah I know you didn't intend to make the original pun, I was just pointing it out :)

However it's clear your second attempt was more deliberate :)

I wounder how quickly Apple will sue the industrial packaging industry for their right to place the "i" in front of "bubble".

Collect bubble wrap people!  When the transition happens, it will be all over eBay for thousands of dollars!





Sometimes what you don't get is a blessing in disguise!

Its a non issue, Sealed Air will have the IP so heavily protected that no other manufacturer will be able to make anything similar for years so every other bubble manufacturer (and most likely Sealed Air) will still be pumping out poppable bubble for the foreseeable future

The "pump" is pretty darn cool though. (skip to about 40 secs to see it in action)
