HP Invents Printer-As-A-Service
HP has reached a new level on motherfuckery:
HP has begun a new program called the "HP Instant Ink" plan. Under this plan, printers monitor how many pages are printed, and HP bills customers monthly. If a customer does not pay his bill, his Instant Ink cartridge stops working. [...] And, according to Paragraph 10a of HP's terms of service agreement, HP makes no guarantees that Instant Ink cartridges will arrive on time or that they will work. So, if the inkjets in a cartridge clog, HP is not responsible.
