2022-01-12 Printer Ink Cartridges Are A Ripoff

From FB group

The article said DRM, but it didn’t make sense to me either. But what makes me wonder is why do they go to the trouble and expense to put a chip in the cartridge if it’s just a matter of accepting the prompt that appears??? What purpose does the chip serve?

The whole printer ink thing seems a bit absurd. I had only one color inkjet printer and hardly ever used it, because at that time, 20+ years ago a set of cartridges cost $75.00 and I thought that was outrageous.

Then I found out that the companies were selling each printer with less than full cartridges! That forced the customer into prematurely buying the expensive cartridges! I think it was the reason why so many went to Kinko’s to do their printing.
