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.

There is an interesting anecdote on this very thing in the Hewlett-Packard Journal, V35 No. 3 (March 1984) on page 44 (the back page).


Jake, your memory for this kind of thing continues to amaze me every time. Thanks for recalling this, and for the reference; you're right, an interesting read!
