HP All-in-one models - the way to extort money

Dear HP,

I bought a HP Photosmart C5380 All-inOne multifunctional unit. It is supposed to be a printer, a scanner and a copier, being able to print on paper, CDs, DVDs and photopaper.

First of all I dislike the way you force me to buy new ink cartridges even if there is still ink in the current cartride. I hope somebody reverse-engineers as soon as possible your 364/364XL cartridge chips so I can use my printer at a price lower than that necessary for a tank fill for my car!

Second, even if one of my cartridges is „missing or defective”, the previous one, the empty one which the current one replaced, is definetly OK, so fuck you and your money extrosion schemes.

Third, and the reason for this rant, is that even if ALL the cartridges are empty, I should be able TO USE THE FUCKING SCANNER FUNCTION, since it doesn't depend on the fucking supposedly missing ink! But I can't because you decided that scanning probably needs ink, otherwise I don't understand why would you block the functioning of the whole unit because of some presumed missing ink issue.

I should probably return this device and ask my money back because of this and when they deny this to make a huge scandal about it.

So, HP, FUCK YOU, you well dressed money extortionists!

Under the weather...

I've been having a cold for a week now. Horrible. My plans of jogging regularly have been messed with by this inconvenience. I hate caughing.
