Actually, some HP Photosmart printers do have permanent printheads and the ink cartridges are merely reservoirs--except like the others they still have ID chips. In this particular instance, one might be a little more cautious about using off-brand ink. Gumming up the permanent printheads would turn the printer into a doorstop.
Right...the hope was that someone would return to the moon and make further use of the lunar rovers--so they were parked far enough away to prevent their being hammered by the ascent-stage exhaust. For many years afterward, the rover prototypes on display back here on Earth had signs attached explaining that anyone who got to the moon should feel free to use them, and had instructions for contacting NASA to obtain replacement battery specs--it was anticipated that the original cells wouldn't last all that long. Some years ago the signs disappeared. Possibly it was felt that by then they would have sustained enough damage from direct sunlight, radiation and micrometeorite hits as to no longer be serviceable.
