Immoral Engineering

My parents have an HP PSC 750xi, which is your typical run-of-the-mill multifunction ink jet printer. It’s a scanner/copier/fax too.

The printer is out of color ink, and it appears to have been intentionally designed to be useless in this scenario. You cannot even use the scan function without a color ink cartridge.

This is just shameless. I’m not sure I could be a member of such a product team. I mean seriously — if I was asked to build such an obviously anti-consumer feature I would quit.

If you’re out there and you worked on this product please, for the good of society, kill yourself now. May I suggest choking on an empty ink cartridge?

    Yeah – and if you are an HP guy who set the price of replacement cartridges at $70 – you might want to take Mark’s suggestion too.
