This is not the company that built the HP 41C calculator.  I've had one since the 80's.  I even dropped it in water once.  It still works fine.  Last year I bought an HP Photosmart 7510 printer.  It spits the printed pages on the floor.  I don't use the color inks for day to day printing.  I save them for photos.  But there's a problem.  The ink evaporates !  That's right.  Even if I don't use this printer, the inks disappear.  To add insult to injury, once the inks get low, the printer sends pop-up messages to my laptop reminding me to buy more ink.  This happens multiple times a day.  And I can't disable this reminder.  There is also a warning not to turn off the printer because doing so will cause it to work improperly.  I turned off the printer anyway--just to stop the pop-up reminders.  Needless to say, I will never buy another hp printer.  And it is extremely doubtful that I will ever buy another hp product of ANY kind.  I have an hp laptop, and I'm not too happy with it either.  Hewlett Packard is doomed.  I predict that, within 5 years, this company will either go under or be acquired.  I have no idea what value (other than patents) any company would see in acquiring it.
