<<i don't get it - how can digital cameras be disposable?

surely they would make a way for the lab to clear the images and then resell

these things for USD $11 to the next unsuspecting tourist :)

if this takes off, the future of film doesn't look too bright :(>>

That's just the point. You merely RENT the camera from the dealer, return it, 
and receive your pics. The camera memories are erased and the camera is 
rented again. Even some parts of throwaway film cameras are recycled. What you are 
buying is the prints. The nature of the camera is irrelevant. How totally 
unLeica like!
