Yes You Can use compatible “green” toner cartridges in your printer and maintain your warranty!
From Bold Spicy News:
One of my clients recently received a call from a Pitney Bowes Sales Rep. They were calling to see if my client needed additional red inkjet cartridges for their Pitney Bowes mailmachine. My client informed the Pitney Bowes rep that they had purchased their ink from Print Green USA, Inc., and at substantial savings. The Pitney Bowes rep then stated that using cartridges that weren’t Pitney Bowes brand would void the warranty on the mailmachine. That is not the case at all. In fact it is illegal for a manufacturer to require that a consumer use a certain brand of product as a condition of the warranty. This is covered by the Magnusson Moss Warranty Act. Read More Here

New Organization Raising Money For Rescue Dogs
100% of Donations Go Directly To Fund Baby Ashley’s Surgery
“Hi, I’m Ashley! My foster Mommy asked me to tell you my story, so here it goes. It’s a little story, because I’m just a little girl: Some Angels from Angels Among Us Rescue saw that I was listed as “Special Needs” at a local kill shelter. I was just a baby — only about 8 weeks old. The Shelter said my “Special Needs” was that I had six toes. But see, that’s not the case. I have what is called Ectrodactyly (I had to have my Foster Mommy help me spell that word!), sometimes called the “Lobster-Claw Syndrome.” Basically, I can’t really walk on my right front paw, because it’s split like a lobster claw, and the split in the bone goes all the way up my leg, so my leg is weak like spaghetti. My Foster Mommy took me to a Doctor to have it checked out. First they said they might have to have it amputated. I don’t know what that means, but it sounds scary. Then she took me to a specialist, a really nice man at Georgia Veterinary Specialists. He said he can do some surgery on my paw now, and then again when I’m ten months old (I’m about 3 months old right now), and that might give me the ability to walk on my front leg!! That would be awesome!!! Right now I have eight foster sister and brother dogs, and they’re all grown up and much bigger than I am, and boy, do I have to try to run fast to keep up with them!! Truthfully, I think they’re all a little scared of me (hee hee)! I try to bark really loud at them and chase them — and they run!! Even though I’m only about 7lbs! My Foster Mommy laughs when I do this, so I do it a lot!
