    Someone's getting fired! If HP doesn't wan't you to use 3rd party cartridges, they should just sell them as such - companies will still buy them because of brand association, but they will save themselves all this bother.

    Ooh, I think I'll grab a bucket of popcorn, camp out on HP's twitter feed and wait for the fit to hit the shan. :D

    I, for one, applaud HP for this move.

    No, seriously. The sheer brazenness of re-enabling the lockout EXACTLY one year after they disabled it is supervillain theatrics in the grand old tradition.
