Here's a message I got from AppleCare today. As Dave Barry says, I am not making this up!

"Dear Jefferey [sic] Norwood:

"During August, 1994, the one year limited warranty on your STYLEWRITER II INK CARTRIDGE [their caps, not mine] will expire. After that, repair bills will be your responsibility. Unless you order AppleCare today.
