First one's free...

Xerox, that former flagship of tech innovation, is moving to a drug-dealer model to sell more ink. FreeColorPrinters.com gives away a free color printer as long as you print 4 or more reams of paper a month.

The catch is that you have to print at least as much as you say you will, and you have to buy all your ink and supplies from FreeColorPrinters.com.

I wonder if paper mills like Louisiana Pacific or Boise Cascade wanted to get in on this deal.

Next thing you know, Exxon will be giving away Escalades so that you'll use up more gasoline...
