Do printer manufacturers "chip" cartridges so that once they have been installed, they cannot be removed from the printer?
I've been having trouble with my printer today. It was not showing me as needing ink, but began to streak. I had a spare cartridge, so installed it. Printing was improved, but not perfect, so I decided to take the new cartridge out, then clean the new one. At this point, the printer stopped printing black at all, so after two attempts at cleaning, I put the new cartridge back in, but that too failed to print black at all. I went out and blew £23 at the local Staples on a new cartridge and lo and behold, all my troubles are over.
But I am left with the gnawing doubt that it was actually my removing the new cartridge after it had been installed which was responsible for the problem. Am I right? In which case, the obvious next question is whether this ethically dubious practice has ever been tested in law?
BTW, I make it that this is my big 50. Can I have another star please, Mr Cat?

Will Green: I'm really looking forward to iOS 13, at the moment the iPad hardware is way ahead of the OS. My MacBook Pro was accidentally broken, so when going on business or interviews I take my iPad. The files app seems very clumsy as it is.
