RE: New "Smart" Cartridges-Some thoughts

I disagree with this. I'm an average home user, and it does bug me that 
these new printers will have "smart chip" cartridges.  I see little use in 
this added expense, I don't take it out when its done and stick it back in 
to try to squeeze out a little bit more ink.  But I do like the ability to 
buy 3rd party cartridges, and if they make the new printers work with 
"smart chip" cartridges it might destroy the 3rd party market.  Then I can 
only imagine how much higher the price of epson cartridges will be after 
the competition is gone.
