Same issue of needless waste for an item that by the time you get it in your hands will be outdated. Besides, I would imagine that USB stick would be a way less economic option than disks and it's not like you think you can get over and score a free thumb drive. I mean, what's a full JFW executable in size? Vispero's not sending out thousands of 4 or 8 GB sticks either.
Besides, you have to make an effort at this point to get a laptop with an optical drive. Towers can't be too far behind.
Still this all dances around the same issue. Sending out DVD's has become a method that's outlived its use. If someone wants a Jaws installer, there's nothing stopping someone from burning it onto a disk if they absolutely want some sort of hard copy. No different than creating a Windows ISO. And yes, I know not everyone is on the same level of computer literacy, but even then, it's not like they get a hard copy for every update released between the major upgrades and yet, everyone survives.
Between the check for update feature built into Jaws, the .EXE file you can download and long established cycle of multiple updates throughout the year, still advocating for a mailer really is pointless.

How about a usb stick with the installer that also acts as a dungle this will cut there license feas to sentenal and thus they can reducee the price.

So do you think they will lower their price for a SMA if you get no disk?
I bet Not.

As I said, all I am asking is for Vispero to send out a one-question
survey to all their SMA holders and ask them: Do you want to continue
receiving a physical DVD?" and there should be two radio buttons
given for the answer, Yes and No. Those who answer Yes are flagged
appropriately in the Vispero database and will continue to receive
their DVD and those who say No will not. This really should not be so
difficult.

I called Vispero yesterday and they said the shipment for the SMA
will be shipping Nextweek due to some delay.

I don't think it's a good idea to discontinue the Disk shippment. I
prefer receiving my SMA

via DVD.

You are right the waste of resource

Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving
