I’m very happy to report, awesome Moxie-Dude readers, that it’s FRIDAY.
Unless if you’re reading this “tomorrow”. Then never mind.
And the only reason why I’m mentioning this is because many of you who subscribe have been telling me that you get the email notifications the day AFTER a new post. To which I can only shrug my shoulders because “technical” is not my bag. Which, come to thing of it, may explain my disability in the kitchen . . .
Note from the hamster: *cough*
Speaking of technical aka technology, is it just me or has anyone else noticed that while our laptops are getting sleeker, faster and more dummy-proof by the nanosecond, printers are getting left behind like the inbred, second cousin from a 70’s movie?
(BTY, if you just heard a banjo playing in the back of your subconscious mind, I regret to inform you that you are of a certain age. If you didn’t, I have no idea what I just said.)
So about this printers-getting-left-behind thing: what’s up with that?
Before you answer, let me tell you my theory:
They’re doing it ON PURPOSE. Why? Because they don’t want us to print!
I just finished writing a press kit for a furniture company and in my research I found out that wood is a limited resource – more limited than I realized – and so the furniture making people are hiring all the printer making people, which means that the printer factories are becoming ghost towns. Think manufacturing cannibalism.
That’s my theory.

Hmm, that is an interesting theory! I never really thought about printers not being updated as much as computers… but now that you mention it, the printer that is in my house right now went through two desktop computers and two laptops over the years!
Yup. That’s how it is. We upgrade our computers, while our printers remain from a faraway yesterday. We don’t update them and the companies don’t improve them. Thanks for connecting, Angel 🙂
