      If any body has any kids in elementary, middle school and/or high school … A printer is a must. The kids are required to do some homework and most projects from the computer. It is not always possible to print it anywhere other than home…Especially when a teen waits until the night before the due date to start working on it. So, although some people can get by with no printer, most can not.

      microchips to monitor the
      ink level left in a cartridge. That microchip
      knows when the cartridge should be empty, and doesn’t recognize a
      refill.

      I do disagree with the “FORCED to buy a brand new very expensive
      cartridge every time!” simply because people can get away without
      printing stuff. We own a printer- which is still in the box, in the
      closet, where it’s been since we were given it.

      I don’t print things- and when I absolutely need something printed
      (which is maybe once every other week), my husband prints it off for me.

      It’s insane what people are willing to buy, because they think they
      NEED it, as opposed to WANTING it. I know people do use printers for
      work & school, but the average family uses it to print out stuff that
      isn’t needed, but rather, wanted.

      Technology isn’t needed. It’s wanted.

      Be a better pen pal. Text or chat with friends inside Yahoo! Mail. See how.
