Printers Were Sent From Hell To Make Us Miserable

Illustrator Matthew Inman has come up with a brilliant comic that perfectly shows the evilness of printers.

  1. :Sigh:
    Ink jet cartridges expire for two reasons:
    1) They dry out (dye based inks) This stops your printer working, and wastes ink as it bleeds air into the head which uses ridiculous amounts of ink to clear.
    2) The ink particles flocculate (pigmented inks) This kills your print head. Permanently.

    Yes, ink is a rip off – the printer is cheap because they rely on the ink price to cover it. It’s also a lot more expensive to make than biro ink …

    And if you only print one copy per year, it’ll be crap because the head has dried out – print every month or more in hot weather to keep it “fresh”. Or better – buy a laser (and welcome to the wonderful world of toner pricing! :OMG: )

  2. The ink and printer industry seems to be crap then. All they care about is money. Why not just rob a bank, then lie to the public about printers and ink?
