Surreal printerNov 20 2007

The best thing about the HP Scitex TJ8300/TJ8500 series printer is not that it makes 5.4 ft. by 12.1 ft. prints or can output 4,304 sq. ft. per hour or costs who knows how many 10000s of dollars. No, the striking feature of this printer is that they made it look just like a normal desktop-sized HP inkjet printer, despite the fact that the damn thing is as big as a hippopotamus.

Huge HP printer

Ceci n'est pas une big fucking printer! Interesting extra tidbit: after the TJ8300s retire from active printing, they're put out to stud to sire the next generation of HP desktop inkjets.

People are printing less photos at homeOct 12 2005

People are printing less photos at home on their inkjet/laser printers because of the high price of ink (and the low price of having them done at Wal-Mart, etc.). Ink costs more than pricey champagne and perfume, which is ridiculous. Printer companies suck...I just changed the ink cartridge in my HP printer and the wrapper said something like "this cartridge not licensed for modification", like they have some sort of control over what I do with their artificially expensive ink dispenser after I've purchased it.
