{     5inch Disc Hubs     }    

cdholder.jpg 5inch is a company which makes and sells beautifully designed and superbly silkscreened CD-r's, as well as various cases, trays, DVD media, storage options, and other compact disc and DVD related knicks and knacks. It's about 8 steps above buying regular CD-r's, and barely one-step below having your favorite artist custom draw on each burnt compilation you make for that long road trip you're going to take this weekend. Trust me, the CD-r's they print are the hotness. But that's not what this is about. What I want to bring to your notice is a little something brought to my attention by sir Josh Rubin at Cool Hunting. 5inch has made these little hubs just like the ones in the center of everyday CD trays, except these don't have the tray and the backs of them are sticky. This means you can stick them inside the cover of a book, dotted along a wall, or even to the side of a baby's head, and then fit a CD securely on them. Simple? Yes. Kinda obvious? Yes. Cool? Still a yes. They make them in black and white, as well as little plastic ones just like regular CD trays, which quickly made me think about fixing all those CD digipaks I have with the little teeth broke out. Just break the rest of the center out and stick one of these where the teeth used to be. Stick a bunch on your wall by your stereo, stick one with a CD inside a card to your Moms, or stick them all over your iPod for protection, any way you look at it, these little boogers are useful. A pack of 10 is $3.50, while a big 'ole batch of a 100 is only $20, with a 30 pack and a 50 pack also available for good measure. A great idea...

(I had a real retard moment trying to figure out exactly what these things did, but thanks to the Flash animation on the 5inch site, I am now able to pretend that I am as smart as everybody else.)
What a brilliant fucking idea!
I especially love the idea of tucking one into a book. Books are cool. Books with CDs or DVDs stuck inside them are even cooler.

I also had the same retard moment. Thank you Flash!

Yeah, it was kinda vague after I re-read it, so I made a few fixes... Sorry 'bout that, but I mean, its hardest to describe the most simple things.
