If there's one universal gripe in this world it's the clamshell blister pack. You know, those fused plastic packages that hold the new gadget you just bought hostage while you cut your hands and cause arthritic damage as you try and free it. Whoever invented them should be put in a blister pack. Luckily the folks over at Amazon have decided to start a revolution. The online superstore has teamed up with companies like Microsoft and Fisher Price to market products that are sold in easier packaging, which makes total sense if you're buying something online. Why have anti-theft packaging on something you can't physically steal?

As you can see from the photo above, gizmos and toys will now be sold in recycled cardboard packaging without rock hard plastic and steel ties. Hallelujah!

Amazon has also included a link to wrap rage photos submitted by customers. This is one we can relate to.
