CVS disposable video camera uncrippled…

With a textbook give away the razors and sell the blades strategy, on June 26th CVS started selling a “one-time-use” video camcorder for just $29.99. Buy it, take your movie, and then get a DVD of your movie for just $12.99 at the CVS photo lab.

Just 39 days later, people have figured out figured how to make it download those movies direct to your own PC directly through USB.

I don’t know how much these things cost to CVS, but they can’t be happy about this obvious development. (No word yet on whether CVS will be taking legal action based on vague “the government should stop anyone from poking holes in our poorly-thought-out business plan” laws…)
