Ok, I understand that the following subject will appeal to only a small population, but those who have actually been annoyed by this, will be pleased to learn this.

Many Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD cases have a "security tab" designed into the case to prevent would-be thieves from removing the discs from the cases in the store and thus making a clean get-away with the disc by leaving the case on the store shelf.

This simple plastic tab, is a nuisance for anal-retentives like myself who've grown accustomed to opening their cases in a single action. Up until this revelation, we had only 2 options: 1. First flip down the security tab, then open the case (1 too many steps in my opinion), or 2. Rip off the tab allowing for future ease access. The problem with the second option is that it leaves a small gap in the case potentially exposing the disc to dust.

Thanks to DVDTalk, there's a third, more desirable option. It turns out the cases are actually designed such that once opened the first time, all you have to do is fold-in the tab and snap it into place. This eliminates any mutilation of the case and seals the gap that would have otherwise been present, but also allows for single-action future access.

I know, it's a small thing, but I can't believe I haven't noticed this before. It turns out there are many others out there who don't know it either. And yes, there are even more out there who simply don't care. But in case you do (no pun intended), here's a crude video I shot briefly outlining the procedure. Enjoy!
