You knew this was coming sooner or later. Kodak has been winding down its businesses and has finally gotten around to its consumer inkjet printers, which were popular (but not popular enough) for using long-lasting ink cartridges. Kodak plans to continue selling those ink cartridges long after it officially shuts down the inkjet printer business in 2013.   Kodak isn’t the only one departing the inkjet printer arena. Lexmark has also announced plans to stop selling its inkjet printers.

This is just one example of the outfit hoping... Read more...
