Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween
Happy Halloween! We want to take a minute and extend our greetings for a very safe and enjoyable Halloween Holliday. Watch the "Little Ones" who are "Trick and Treating" during the evening hours. Don't eat too much candy but stick to the healthy carrots, cucumbers and dip. Since we are mature adults, generally the fearful Ghosts and Goblins don't scare us. However, we discovered something really scary. Your Printer Manufacturer can actually stop your printer from printing. If you use a compatible or remanufactured brand product to lower your cost, then by accepting a "Firmware or Software Driver" update, you could lock your machine to only use OEM Brand Products. Scary but it’s fact. Our message is simple. Please, do not accept ANY changes to your printer(s). If you are happy with the printer's performance, then there will be no benefit for you to accept firmware upgrades disguised as product updates or system improvements or printer enhancements or any other phraseology used by the OEMs. Technology allows them to control how your printer reads and reacts to the cartridge chip and if it's not an OEM chip then it will lock the printing function and display a frightful warning like for example: "Your cartridge is empty" or "Your cartridge is not properly installed". Protecting your customers and your business is the top priority. Changes to your end users' printer by the OEM could leave the printer unable to accept remanufactured cartridges. Naturally, your frustration will be toward us not the OEM and you'll go through life swearing that compatibles / remanufactured products are no good. That's exactly what they want to achieve. However, for the consumer it's a very costly choice to make. Like we learned many times, if it isn't broken, don't fix it. Don't be part of the group that is locked out from using alternative products. Just "Say No" to any updates or new firmware offered (for free) by Lexmark. Samsung, Dell, IBM, Epson, Canon, HP, Brother or any OEM looking to take control of your equipment. Happy Halloween, we hope we haven't scared you too much!
