That's an accurate, if cynical, description of how the inkjet business model works. The consumer market unfortunately exhibits the "planned obsolescence" behavior a lot more than in my neck of the woods. We have one product developed in the mid 1990's that we are still refurbishing and supporting to this day. Some of our customers get 10,000 hours or more of life out of their printheads when the design life was originally 2,000 hours.
