Bubble Wrap will soon lose its pop

The one company that makes Bubble Wrap has decided to move forward with a lot less air. They've revealed a new product for shipping that does the same thing for products, but a lot less for those lovers of popping the otherwise-trashed bubbles after the unwrap. Instead of each individual bubble being inflated with air, the new wrap, called iBubble, will come with a row of bubbles connected by tubes. As such, each long tube of bubbles will have one air chamber instead of a bunch. No more popping.

It does remind us that Prince has the one true claim to being the greatest living rock star on the planet. He doesn't need to say so.
