I've an inkling it might be a ploy
I WONDERED if any readers have had the same experience as myself with computer printers.
Despite being economical with printing – I use mainly black ink and very rarely colour – the cartridges always seem to need replacing every six months at most, regardless of how much (or how little) I use them.
And, of course, once the colour cartridge has run out, I cannot use the black one on its own and thus need to replace it with a new one.
As Michelle Hurst recently pointed out in her column, printer ink is expensive for so little a product.

Is there a way to make the inks last longer than seemingly six months before replacing them?
Or is this a devious software ploy by the manufacturers?
Any advice on the matter would be appreciated.
My current printer is a Kodak, although I had roughly the same life span for cartridges with my old Epson one.
