Ink cartridges for our home printer are so expensive that it's the only thing people have to say about the otherwise decent printer. I don't know if this is a case of a vendor putting its revenue ambitions ahead of its customers, or a case of consumers not researching their purchases, or both. But it's clearly a problem. Just to clarify: a single, short-lived cartridge of one color costs $35.
I spoke with our IT fellow at the office, and he said, "You can buy a good b&w laser printer for $150. If I won an ink-jet printer today, I would throw it away."
Three reasons to be thankful:
- It became spring
- My work on an industry association initiative is being taken forward
- I got to edit a friend's photography book
