Re: connecting two laptops to USB - easy question



fixed

Return an OEM-branded cartridge to OfficeMax and get a free ream of
(mediocre but fine for normal use) paper.

maybe a little OT but Staples has a deal where you get $3 off (an in
store
coupon) when you bring in/recycle printer cartridges.  My wife as doing
a Mother's Day Photo Album for the church this year and we went thru a
dozen or so color cartridges.  She dutifully saved them and when she
went in to buy some more they THEN told her (not printed in store
anywhere or on the
coupon) that you could only use "1" per visit/purchase to the store, so
she now makes it a point to stop in and buy "something" we need that
before tax will take it as little over $3 as possible, use the coupon,
pay $.05 or so for pack of pens, paper, etc.

We buy refilled cartridges here for HP DeskJets and haven't had an

It's from a local supplier that I have known for a long time and our 
rep let's us try anything. We tried these a couple of years ago and 
they were garbage. They have gotten a LOT better.

He did have a set of the same cartridge for the last 3 or 4 years.
Original
HP cartridges, same SKU # etc. He has them in chronological order and 
the amount of ink that is in each one has gone down EVERY year...
Crooks...

These printers are DEFINITELY the loss leader for them to make the 
money on cartridges...

Where do you think they make their money? It isn't the printer...
