Plextor, the company name which makes everyone say, "Hm, I think I've heard of them before," will soon be shipping an unusual kind of CD/DVD drive - one that completely destroys all the data on any disc inserted into it. Sure, we've seen these kinds of things before, like the simply-designed Norazza CD/DVD Data Destroyer, but the Plexeraser works a little differently.
Instead of just brusing the underside of the disc, the Plexeraser actually re-writes over the disc and physically makes all the data written to it inaccessible. It's a great gadget for all of our secret IRS agent readers (yes, we know you're here), but probably not of interest to a wide audience.Nonetheless, if you've got personal information stored away on some CD and you'll never need to access it again, and this situation occurs to you quite often, you'll want a way to completely and easily dispose of that information, and the Plexeraser might be just the thing.
