Woefully Behind the Times
I'm convinced that HP stands for Hokey Printers. My last two DeskJets were complete flops: the first one had a breakdown after only a year or two, at which point I purchased a DeskJet 952C. When the color cartridge started to go I did what all mammals do and bought another one. But the colors where never right again, they were off (blue kept coming up as a faint green). Another cartridge, very similar if not the exact same problem.
Now that printer is gonna get the beat down, ala Office Space.
So I gots me a Canon MP240 - it was on sale, which is great, but it's also a scanner for added bonus!
I diligently follow the instructions for setup, when I get to the step that requires connection to your PC, but can't find the slot for it on the printer. Further inspection reveals a square USB port, 'Oh I've got some of those' I think to myself without missing a beat. But the cords I do have are for cameras and such, the connections are far too small for the one on this printer.
What, no more big, clunky printer cable. You mean that I can finally ditch that monstrosity? More importantly, when did this happen and why wasn't I informed?
