A few quotes of mine appeared in a recent Christian Science Monitor article on printer ink.
“What I’ve found over the past few years is that ink itself is a very good commodity to be in,” says Tom Merritt, executive editor of CNET, a technology news and reviews website based in San Francisco.
“I tried one of the home kits,” says Mr. Merritt. “But it just turned into a sloppy mess. I’ll probably not use them again.”
“I’ve found that if you just pop them out and put the cartridge back in as if it were new, you can usually trick the printer into using the same one,” says CNET’s Merritt. “Or, if you really do a lot of printing, consider a laser printer.”
