Bought a new printer today.

The 3 in 1 printer I had, which I've been happy with, was a Brother MFC. I bought it awhile back for about $100. Well I needed to print out an important document last night and the printer informed me that it was out of blue ink and I needed to replace the blue (cyan) cartridge. I told it black only was ok, I don't need blue. It said, "Replace the blue cartridge!" and refused to do anything else.

So I went to Best Buy today to get a blue cartridge so I could print out my black and white document. I figured I better get cartridges for all the other colors too while I'm there. Ya know, keep the printer happy. Well the cost of the 4 cartridges was $100! "What? What else you got for printers?" For $150 I walked out with a brand new, latest model HP Photosmart Premium loaded with way more features and it will even allow me to print a black and white document when I'm out of blue. Comes with full cartridges and the replacement ink cartridges cost half.

I loaded the software, turned it on, welcomed it into my home and it responded that it was ready to serve me.

Sorry Brother, you're outta here!

No, I'm in USA right now. They don't have Best Buy in Singapore. They have Challenger which is where I bought my camera.

The ads Andrew has on the bottom are pretty good at picking up on key words and targeting ads. If I post something about Maine the ads on the bottom are all about lobster and seafood restaurants.

Challenger. I'll have to google that.

As for targeting ads, I'll have to watch my searches as looking for some UNIX soft ware patches
