    A Call for Paperless Due to OEM Printer Being so Hated and Dysfunctional.
    Opinion: Let’s delved into the abysmal world of home printers, uncovering why they’re universally despised and offering strategies to alleviate the frustration or seek alternatives. The sentiment echoed by millions is clear — printers evoke feelings of pure hate and rage.

    The truth is stark: there’s no such thing as a good printer, only variations of bad ones. Constant testing revealed some insights, suggesting that investing more upfront in a laser printer or a model with an ink tank might mitigate some of the headaches associated with traditional inkjet printers.

    Our collective experience unveiled a harsh reality — printers are incorrigible, and reform seems futile. It’s time to dismantle the tyranny printers impose on American life.

    Even if you’re one of the rare few who claim to love their printers, take a moment to observe the widespread discontent surrounding these devices. The industry’s disdainful treatment of customers shouldn’t go unnoticed or unrewarded.

    The solution? Starve printers of their oxygen — our printing tasks. Every document, photo, or label we opt not to print brings us closer to a future where printers are obsolete relics.

    However, dismantling the printer regime won’t be easy. Marc Weber, a curator at the Computer History Museum, likened today’s printers to a devolution of technology, regressing from the awe-inspiring marvels of the past to glitch-ridden nightmares of the present.

    But there’s hope in sight. The shift away from printing is already underway. Consider the transformation of flight and event tickets — once paper staples, now predominantly digital. This shift illustrates that when presented with better options, people willingly abandon outdated practices.

    So, before hitting the print button, pause and ponder: Could this task be accomplished without printing? Whether it’s using mobile boarding passes or leveraging scanning apps, alternatives exist if we’re willing to embrace them. Yet, amidst our frustrations, let’s remember one thing — printers won’t change. Only we can. By collectively reducing our reliance on printing by going paperless, we pave the way for a future where printers are nothing more than relics of a bygone era.
