Canon Can’t

Just had a new personal printer from Canon delivered. It has a 20 page A5 Quick Start manual. Unfortunately, it’s bound up with the same information in 23 other languages – 480 pages of which 460 are total useless! How many trees is that in a year?

In the past I would have been tempted to shrug my shoulders and just say there must be a better way. Now I’m smug in the knowledge that this will come back and bite Canon if they don’t do something about it soon.

The time is now past when this sort of wasteful process is acceptable from a major IT supplier. All IT vendors need to address these issues now before public opinion (and bad publicity) forces a response.
