    Revamped Bubble Wrap Loses Its Pop

    Bubble Wrap, the packaging material popular with shippers and toddlers alike, is losing its pop.

    Sealed Air Corp., the original seller of Bubble Wrap since 1960, is rolling out a revamped version of its signature product. Dubbed iBubble Wrap, the new packaging is sold in flat plastic sheets that the shipper fills with air using a custom-made pump. The inflated bubbles look much like traditional Bubble Wrap, with one key difference: They don’t burst when pressure is applied.

    I saw a story about this on our morning news. I thought I was going crazy yesterday when I got a package in the mail, and tried to introduce my 4 y.o. niece to the joys of popping bubble wrap. The stuff would NOT pop! I was dumbfounded. NOW I know why :facepalm:

    Sealed Air, maker of the iconic packaging material, is rolling out a new flat version to cut down on the high costs of shipping air

    Is it the weight or the volume that makes air so expensive to ship ??

    This is bullshit. This angers me SO much more than the Dukes of Hazzard being taken off the air.
