I took my home printer to the tip a few weeks ago.
As I hurled it into the mixed waste skip, a feeling of liberation overcame me.
I have a sneaky suspicion that nobody actually *likes* the printer they have. It was something they've just learnt to tolerate, like the monthly connection charge for your landline.
My landline is still there due to the 'deals' in place to assist me in retaining it (don't pay it and you'll lose your landline and we'll take the discount off your internet bill and you'll end up with a 25p saving).
I can't help but feel when a load of HP users suddenly find their printer no longer works, they'll just follow my example, rather than rushing out to the shop with £50 they suddenly feel the need to give to HP.
Is "Resented Technology" a thing yet?
