Printing Money

Thursday, April 15th, 2004 at 1011

Once again my early (Hah!) morning glance over the BBC pulled this article about printer economy to the fore. It’s true that people are being liberated of their cash in a dastardly fashion by the ink vendors, not least when they return to the store they purchased the printer from to buy their cartridges. Why so? Well, PCWorld might do you a good deal on a printer but I guarantee they’re going to bend you over and take you for everything when it comes to replacing the ink… 😐

I think it’s time the modding community got a hold of this one. Afterall, how hard can it be to custom-build a super-reservoir, similar perhaps to the old Canon approach of having 1 colour and one black cartridge, or having one large black tank that occupied the same space as the two smaller ones.

There’s money in this, I can smell it.
