Always read the fine print!

When it comes to unpleasant experiences, buying printer ink is up there with (a) the dentist chair and (b) dropping your soap in a shower room of a Turkish prison.

Today's shopping excursion re-enforced it for me.

Cannon PGB250: Do you buy the normal size, or the "XL"?
  • Normal: $15.99
  • XL: $24.99

Could be quite a savings. Only $9 extra. Presumbly for twice the ink...

Robbing basterds

Hold on a minute.
  • 15ml for $15.99 is 1.066 $/ml
  • 22ml for $24.99 is 1.136 $/ml

If you're not good with the numbers, let me paraphrase: bend over pretty boy.
