And the winner is: Horrible Bosses

That's the first movie to be released on UltraViolet DVD by the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem, which is a consortium of movie studios and entertainment companies. So what's so special about these discs? Do they double as Frisbees? Made of gold are they? Can Mother use one as an absorbent coaster for her water-beaded glass of sweet tea? Well, no, but they do come with a code that allows you to access the movies on any device you might own. It's basically cloud storage for DVDs, which makes me wonder why not save some plastic and let people just buy access to the cloud.
