My understanding is that manufacturers (HP among them) are moving toward
"smart" cartridges which know when they're empty...but not when they've
been refilled. Effectively enforcing single-use status, and murmers of
using tools such as DMCA Anti-circumvention for enforcement. Anyone
have experiences / further information on this? And note that I may be
half-remembering or rumormongering here....
