The ring pull goes on the top. Where its always been. Are you suggesting
a side-vent? May be problematic.

My suggestion would be that the ring pull goes next to the vertex so to
make a better can-to-lip seal.

Several of the major players in the telecine manufacturing sector will
shortly be marketing the following device for ease of can opening:


Rob, it might be an idea to give these away free at the TK party @ NAB.

Offers of sponsorship to the usual address.

Thanks to Sean McKee and Digital Vision AB for supporting the TIG.
While appreciating Jeff's update from the leading edge of technology, I
feel it is my duty to introduce a note of caution again.

If you have a hexagonal beer can, where does the ring-pull go? On an
edge or on a vertex? I feel a new SMPTE committee coming on.
