Having just gone out for some last minute stocking stuffers for my significant (very significant if I know what's good for me) other, I can totally relate to this headline and story. I purchased 6 cartridges in total for an HP Photosmart 8450 printer and it cost me over $170. Now mind you, the printer itself, almost a full year ago now, cost me like $110.
PopPhoto comments on HP's (and many others) racket in the ink business. You think it's about selling printers? Guess again. The ink biz pulls in more profit than a high-end Cat House a when ship full of Navy boys pulls up to port.
I'm in the wrong business. Gotta figure out how to make me some of that magenta lovin'. Ought to be easy enough!
