* Inkjets in trouble

The NY Times reports on a new issue for consumers: their old photo prints are dying fast.

The cause? Inkjet printers were never designed for printing things that would last.

Traditional color prints have an advantage over inkjet prints. Dyes that make up images in traditional prints are suspended in three layers of gelatin, well below the surface.

Photo inkjet paper is generally coated to prevent the printer ink from soaking into its base, which would create a blurry and discolored photo. But that coating usually leaves the ink sprayed by the printer directly on top of the print, where it is vulnerable to light, humidity, pollution and scratches.
