I seriously think that HP should give their printers away free. They’ve got a monopoly on the ink cartridge market already, and they’d just be getting more new customers.
I had to buy an ink cartridge last weekend and I practically shit my pants when I saw I’d need to spend a little more than fifty bucks to get one – and that’s just for a single color cartridge – not including black.
If the ink was made from of the blood of sweatshop labor in India, it still wouldn’t be worth anything near $50. Now I see why those inkjet refill spammers are so insistent that they’ll save you so much money – they will!
