I just put on my social-responsibility hat to
send this note out.  I believe it...it makes
sense...we have little recourse BUT...view this
video about WHAT IS HAPPENING behind the walls of
your printers!  This video almost makes me want
to take a screwdriver and pliers to my printer to
see what is accumulating inside!  --bill

Hey, check out this story from DVICE that

you.

printing: Inkjet printers have a dirty little
secret

Who knew what was going on inside inkjet
printers? Yikes. A lot of that ink, which costs

times more per milliliter than a $350 bottle of
the
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cristal(champagne)>finest
Cristal champagne, is seeping into a gummy well
of useless black slime. What a waste. Our
solution? Stop printing altogether. Send
documents digitally, and show people pics on our
iPhones instead of prints stashed in our
wallets. At home, it's digital picture frames
all the way with no color printing. Hey, we're
recession-proof! Via
