If you think gasoline is expensive these days, imagine the price for a gallon of ink for your home inkjet printer. The price of printer ink may be the only liquid besides gasoline that infuriates consumers so much. It doesn't take long for the cost of ink-cartridge replacements to exceed the price of the printer. You can choose among money-saving alternatives, and the best value is not clear-cut. But the decision is based on an age-old trade-off: price versus quality. Studies show the printer's manufacturer makes the best-quality inks.

It might seem like a bad time to expand a retail business, with consumers cutting back drastically on spending and sales plummeting at many stores. But there are still some businesses thriving and looking to open up new stores. Five such companies told a group of brokers and other retail and commercial real estate professionals they were looking for sites to expand their business in Maryland, Washington and Virginia during a session sponsored by the International Council of Shopping Centers on Thursday night.

150 years ago in The SunJuly 12: BUYING A MOTHER'S FREEDOM -- A colored man named John Douglass, who was once a slave in Washington, and has been for some time engaged in this establishment as a pressman, has the satisfaction of seeing his mother, whom he left a slave a few years since, a free woman. John was unwilling to have his mother remain in slavery, and has been endeavoring for some time to raise money enough to buy her freedom.100 years ago in The SunJuly 12: "A cartridge of dynamite is pretty much like a woman -- you can never tell what it is going to do next, because it doesn't know itself," said a boss blaster.

The Iomega Corp. has increased the capacity and decreased the price of its Bernoulli Box, which is good news even for people who are thinking, "What's a Bernoulli Box?"A Bernoulli Box is a device for storing large amounts of data on a removable cartridge. The cartridge itself is essentially a hybrid of a floppy diskette and a hard disk, the size of about four conventional 5.25-inch floppy diskettes in a stack. Not everyone needs one, but they are certainly a blessing for some people."The main reason to buy one of these things is removability, because you want to lock up your data at night, or to save time and grief in swapping projects on your computer," said Robert H. Katzive, vice president of Disk/Trend Inc., a Mountain View, Calif.

My Hewlett Packard DeskJet 2000C stopped printing, giving this error message: "Your black ink cartridge has expired." I installed a spare ink cartridge, but got the same message and could not print. HP software apparently reads a date code on cartridges and blocks their use after a set length of time. HP support said I could not bypass this. The best way to defeat such a software scheme that uses a computer's internal clock to enforce software copy protection or check expiration dates is to set the computer to a past year when the days of the week for every month fall on the same dates as this year.

That laser printer sitting on your desk could be emitting high levels of potentially hazardous particles, according to a study published this month. Some printers released almost as many ultra-fine particles as a smoldering cigarette, the study authors said. There have been few studies on the health hazards of printing, and the current research, appearing in the journal Environmental Science and Technology, provides the most extensive look yet at particle emissions of office printers, including Canon, Hewlett-Packard, Ricoh and Toshiba models.

I have a 2-year-old version of Windows 98, and sooner or later it always ends a session with the mouse (and everything else) locking up, going crazy or what have you. It doesn't matter what program I'm in, or what's open - it just results in a wildly jumping mouse until Control-Alt-Delete shuts it down. I tried the $5 Microsoft CD-ROM "fix" to no avail. It's a 233 MHz Pentium with 64 megabytes of RAM, a pretty ordinary machine. Your suggestions? You can reinstall Windows to get your computer back on the straight and narrow.

Some everyday purchases seem to tick off consumers more than others. Gasoline and inkjet cartridges are examples. Another is razor blades. The razor industry is known for a marketing strategy in which the seller takes a loss on the device, the razor handle, and makes money on refills, the blades. Whether you are shaving your face or your legs, you could be paying several dollars each for today's multiple-blade cartridge refills. You could buy cheaper blades, but many consumers claim the more expensive new razors are, indeed, superior.

IT IS THE little victories in life that sustain us. I had a sweet one the other day, when a sink that had swallowed a screw coughed it back up. As a veteran of many encounters with plumbing parts, I knew their favorite tactic was to disappear down the drain. As I began to repair a dripping faucet, I had already sealed the drain escape route. Yet I was caught off-guard when, in mid-repair, I looked around for a tiny setscrew and realized that it was resting in a pool of water just below the base of the hot water faucet.

The first time you pick up the Game Boy Advance SP, you'll wonder why Nintendo didn't design the GBA like this to begin with. In technical specifications, the SP is the original GBA's identical twin. It has the same screen size and resolution, same processor, same number of buttons and is compatible with original GBA cartridges. It also works with Nintendo's e-Reader, if you're into that. But the SP is by far the more presentable sibling. The SP folds into a tiny square and tucks neatly into just about any pocket.

Ford and Chevron have partnered to design a new SUV. They claim it will run smoother and longer on a gallon of gas than any other SUV in the same class. However, you'll have to use a special Chevron Premium gas that costs 30 percent to 70 percent more than typical gas. It's up around the $3- to $4-a-gallon level. Use any other gas from any other station and a microchip in the tank will detect the difference and prevent the SUV from starting. That protects you from poor performance and possible damage to the finely tuned engine.
