There was another signifficant reason listed: a lot of small companies geared
up their factories and went "b*lls-out" to produce discs without purchase
orders. Then they were stuck with inventories which they sold at bankrupcy
prices (in fact the case with many companies). Hence, the 10-cent CD-R.
PC World didn't speculate whether the "Three-times Increase" would be for the
10-cent discs, or across the board. We'll see. :-)
