Over 10 years ago I bought an inkjet printer from Canon (which is still working fine) because it does not use such tricks.

Lucky you!
I was talking about low-end printers. That is the price range around 50$.
If yours was really that cheap, I would be interested which model is that.

And BTW, talking about HP: I'm sure most of you know, that all the HP inkjets are Canon engines?

Actually, that statement on Inkjets being based on Canon Technology is not correct.

Thermal Inkjet Printers, the way we know them today, were developed by HP labs back in the early 80's. ThinkJet was the first one out, DeskJet later as the affordable replacement for Laser technology at a much lower price point. Canons BubbleJet is a similar technology as HP's. Given that HP probably Patented all the key technologies back then, one could wonder if the basis (initially) of the BubbleJet were not a sort of Technology Exchange between the 2 companies.

On the other hand the LaserJets until recently were almost exclusively made by Canon (this is public knowledge, you can find reasons why this happened by looking up LaserJet in Wikipedia). The Samsung Acquisition a couple of years ago, likely changed part of that arrangement.
