    What a bunch of Scrooges over at HP.



    And annoying scrroges at that.



    My brother got us an All In One J4580 HP Printer for Christmas, everything looked good, decided to hook it up once I got some paper for it. I got the paper, installed the printer, installation was pretty smooth, thank God I know about choosing custom installation because HP tried to shove a sh!tload of annoying programs down your throat so it can slow down your PC just like a newly packaged Dell computer with 10 useless programs running right from the get go.



    Why they do this, freaks the sh!t out of me, why would they annoy their customers, do they think everyone is stupid, why would I want useless annoying crap on my pc?



    Anyhow, next is the real funny part, I'm installing the printer software, everything is going good, than it asks me for a usb cable, oh ok let me go see if I forgot it in the box, I get the box, look inside, nothing's there, I look at the **bleep** box and it says Dont Forget Cable, and some other ink toner and stuff!, Dont forget what??



    Dont forget it in the box? What do you mean? Oh your trying to say dont forget to buy!! Ahhhh!



    How **bleep** cheap can you be to not include a 1$ USB cable inside the box. WoW. That's ugly.



    Now it's Christmas, everything is closed, I'll wait... Except now I also have a **bleep** ugly little bugger of an icon appearing on my toolbar eveytime I start the computer but cant access it's options to remove it because I havent finished the whole installation because I have no USB cable.



    What's funny is that the local major electronics store has USB cables for 34.99 LOL. I ordered one using eBay from Hong Kong for 2.49, shipped. So now I have to wait 2 more weeks. Thx HP.



    And thanks for the useless coupon manual for the free quicken accounting software that is only available to customers in the USA, you didnt know that some of your boxes actually make it to Canada? Who does your shipping, Santa?



    Anyhow, a crappy experience, when this noisy printer goes dead, I'll look for a Canon, Brother or Epson. I cant wait to throw it in the garbage, the experience is something that could have happened say in 1998, it's 2010, your still sleeping HP?
