Just when you thought people were beginning to grok that all that region code crap on DVDs is actually hurting sales (and people have code free players, anyway), here’s a new idea: why not expand that hugely successful instrument to – you guessed it – PRINTER CARDRIDGES!
Apart from that being a crap idea anyway, Boing Boing has an excellent anaylsis why all the excuses about commercial and/or currency reasons are also bogus.
I don’t get it – do they really think they can rip off their european customers? It’s already cheaper to buy a new printer than a new cartridge in some places, this move might make it even more worthwhile. Or move people to buy laser printers for good.
