I think we’ve got the razor-blade method of marketing printers figured out: Sell the printer for a couple of bucks, then gouge and exploit us on cartridges. I hate it.
Lexmark makes its money the old-fashioned way. It sells printers at higher-than-competitor’s printers, but then sells the ink cartridges at reasonable prices.
Windows 7, Netbooks and Cloud Computing were all hugely popular technologies in 2009. These made for an extremely interesting year of writing and yet already my greedy mind is turning to see what’s next on the tech front.
I’m ready for sun glasses that phone, do Internet, and play movies. I know they”ll be here soon.
