It’s a well-known fact that one of the best ways to flush your extra cash down the toilet is to buy an inkjet printer and use first-party ink. HP just proved why in a big, big way.For years now, most “genuine” ink cartridges for inkjet printers have shipped with embedded chips. Their purpose? Why, to keep your printer running in tip-top shape, of course… by ensuring that you’re not using a cartridge that’s too old, too close to being empty, or manufactured by someone who doesn’t really know how to make ink cartridges for your printer.That’s what OEMs like HP want you to think, but it’s really all about profits. You can’t sell a decent inkjet printer for $50 and hope to make any money. You can, however, lock your customers in for consumable purchases and then charge them double what a third-party does for ink.Recently, HP allegedly put a new twist on what a lot of people already thought was one of the biggest scams in the computer business. They pushed a firmware update to printers that caused all non-genuine ink cartridges in them to quit working on the same date.On September 13, reports started pouring in from people who owned the same Envy printer as the content-looking woman above. Their ink, it seemed, was suddenly deemed unworthy by their printers. Complaints like this on HP’s tech support forums are nothing new, but the massive influx over the past week leaves little doubt that this is probably more than a coincidence.
