    Maybe due to the fact that we're in a World Wide Recession alot of people may have cut back on their printing due to expensive replacements ?

    I think that such videos are a waste of time -- give us the news if you have in in text. loading and running videos has too much wasted time involved in the transaction, even with a broadband connection. you can still post ads next to the text.

    I am seeing a lot more "regular" people are finding printing at walmarts or the drugstore are easier and cheaper for them. HP has some competition and their printing supplies are in need of discounting.
