HP says it will restore 3rd party ink cartridge functionality

Few things in the world of technology anger people more than ink cartridges for printers. We have all been trying to print a document only to have the printer stop and force you to replace the cartridge to keep printing. Often that happens well before any print issues like streaks or faded color happens. HP really got itself into the muck with a firmware that bricked some third party ink cartridges recently and is now asking forgiveness of its customers.

Although snapping up photos, especially selfies, with our smartphones have become almost second nature, there will always be times when even the most tech savvy user will want a physical copy of that memory, be it for sharing or as a part of a larger collage.

Now HP, whose business includes printers of course, is joining the fray as well with the new HP Sprocket.

HP printer firmware snuck in failure date for 3rd-party cartridges

Expiring messages on instant messaging services is one thing. But an undisclosed “expiring” dates on printers using unofficial ink cartridges? Not that usual. And yet, that is practically what HP is admitting to after it has been accused of sneaking in a pre-programmed failure date for printers that were using non-blessed, third party ink cartridges. And that happened only after thousands have already reported that their printers suddenly started showing cartridge error messages, all on the same date: September 13.

HP 2016 OMEN gaming lineup includes an omen-ous cube

Pardon the pun that was just too hard not to make. PC gamers are quite a passionate and sometimes eccentric bunch that loves to give some character to their rigs. From Alienware's out of this world lights to HP's new OMEN X gaming desktop, which you would hardly associate with a desktop, much less a gaming PC, when you look at it. That's because not only is it in the shape of a cube, it is also set up to stand on one of its corners, not on one of its flat faces.

HP Elite x3 ads, Workspace app pop up to “reinvent mobility”

HP will soon be launching the Elite x3, probably one of the most interesting Windows 10 Mobile device so far (which is telling or damning of the platform). Naturally, it is revving up the marketing machine to convince the market, especially enterprise customers, that this huge, expensive smartphone is the smartphone to beat. And not because it has oodles of mobile apps for users to enjoy (it doesn't) but the exact opposite: it's a smartphone designed for very serious business.

HP Elite x3 retail date clarified yet again

HP Elite x3 retail date clarified yet again

Given all the attention lavished on the Galaxy Note 7 and, soon, the iPhone 7, it is understandable if Windows 10 Mobile users feel left out of all the smartphone fun. But in less than a month, however, they might have something to flaunt as well. HP has just confirmed that the HP Elite x3 "3-in-1" smartphone is indeed launching at the end of the month.
