Canon’s new PIXMA MP960 AIO (All-In-One) has a unique 7-color Chroma Life 100 ink system and the ability to print up to 9600 x 2400 color dpi on a variety of papers. It combines an easy-scroll wheel user interface with a 3.5-inch HD TFT screen.
“The Canon PIXMA MP960 model combines all of the best features from our PIXMA line of high quality printers and all-in-one devices, and is truly the ultimate home photo kiosk,” said Yukiaki Hashimoto, senior vice president and general manager at Canon U.S.A., Inc.

The MP960’s 3,584-nozzle print head ejects drops as tiny as one picoliter and can print a borderless 4 x 6-inch photo lab-quality print in about 35 seconds. The AIO’s speed is 30 pages per minute for black and white documents and up to 22 pages per minute for color. There are two paper trays, one for plain paper and one for photo paper, so you won’t have to switch back and forth. The MP960 is available at an MSRP of $399.99.

Canon Recalls Copiers Due to Fire Hazard

Cannon Copier ButtonWait!  Don’t push that button just yet. Within weeks of the Dell and Apple laptop battery dilemma, there is another huge recall in the midst from another Japanese company, but to the relief of CEO Idei, it’s not Sony this time.  Apparently these Japanese companies have lost their touch with keeping the magic smoke inside electronics because Canon announced yesterday that it would recall more than 140,000 personal copiers because they could produce smoke and catch fire. The recall will cost the company somewhere in the neighborhood of $1.7M.

About 2 million of the copiers have been produced, but Canon estimates only 270,000 of the devices are still in use and only about 141,000 are affected by the recall. If that ratio holds, it means of these 1.7 million retired units, over 800,000 would have been affected by the recall.  I wonder how many of them went out in a blaze of glory.
