  • Printer ink

    pinched this from the BBC website

    In 2003 Which? carried out research showing that measure for measure, ink was seven times more expensive than a vintage bottle of Dom Perignon champagne.

    That was then... almost ten years later, it's probably worth throwing out the bubbly and hoarding ink cartridges.

    Save the planet... buy a new printer every time the ink runs out.
    It's not what inspires us that is important, it's where the journey takes us.

      However, Dom Perignon doesn't produce long-lasting colourful prints

        Ah - but champagne gives pleasure for maybe 5 minutes, after which it leaves you with a headache.

        A good quality print lasts for 30+ years and will give pleasure throughout its life.

        So 'measure for measure' printer ink is more than 450000 times the value of champagne.

        Given meaningless comparisons it's quite possible to calculate meaningless results.

          The price of Dom Perignon is what some people are prepared to pay for something they like but don't need.

          The price of printer ink is(like petrol) what most people have to pay for something they need. Captive market!

            I seem to remember from my youth certain girls for whom champagne was an apparent necessity.

            I soon learnt that they were a luxury, however captiveating they believed themselves to be.

              It's terrible - no one has fed me the line (and how appropriate that form of words would prove to be) I need for the second part of my response.

              E-group I'm disappointed in you.
