Inkjet cartridges are the biggest con going.
that's how HP has billion dollar Quarters... yet the CEO takes bonus's away from his employee's and bumps his percentage point of profit sharing to 79%... go figure
Hope ya don't mind, but I nicked this :)
Yup, it's no secret that for a 'technology' company, the vast majority of HP's profits come from overpriced ink.
actually to place a 2 pica liter droplet within a 4 micron radius, your actually paying for engineering of the print head, not the ink. it takes hundreds of scientist from Mechanical, Electrical Engineers, chemist to create the ink, technicians to test the micro fluidics and years of testing to make sure what they test is what is delivered. Not to mention the writing systems to break down when to fire 1 of 2000 nozzles or orifices to squirt such a small amount of ink, things to be measured would be drop weight, velocity, energy, pulse widths, pen to paper spacing, along with aero dynamics of a moving print head and drop placement, etc... All so you can print a picture and have it appear on paper. Also the term paper was reinvented hundreds of times so when such a small drop hit, it did what it was suppose too.
