A good rant by Dylan on the business models for printer companies, and why low printer prices are not what they seem. What the printer companies do is a timeless trick. If I remember correctly, John D. Rockefeller used this technique to enter the Chinese market, selling Kerosene lamps at cost, with only one fill of the fuel. And, of course, Standard Oil Co. was the only one that could sell you what was needed to use them after that.
