HP gets nasty
Feb 8, 2007

I went to the local office supply store (Staples) and found that the store manager was removing all the "HP Compatible" cartridges from the wall and placing them in the "clearance" bin.

Having known him for a long time, I asked him what he was doing.

He told me that an HP rep had been in the store and informed him that if Staples continued to sell the "Staples Brand" "HP compatibles" they would no longer be allowed to sell HP printers.

He checked with the franchise office and found out that the Staples chain had agreed to the blackmail.
