    I was flippiing through a recent copy of Martha Stewarts' Living (don't ask) and came across a Canon photo ad with the headline "Here's a photo that will last."

    Then it says "ChromaLife 100 inks and genuine Canon photo paper, you end with...photos that can last a lifetime*."

    Now the fine print...

    * "Lifetime claim based on accelerated testing by Canon in dark storage under controlled temperature , humidity, and gas conditions, simulating storage in an album with plastic sleeves."

    Then it goes on to say...

    "Canon cannot guarantee the longevity of prints; results may vary depending on printed image, drying time, display/storage conditions and factors."

    So what happens when you print one and hang it on the wall?

    "Chromalife 100" wow, now that is an impressive new name huh? I need to start registering domain names and try to anticipate some of the ones which have not been invented yet. Maybe:

    Hyperiachrome gt100
    Archivachrome vx500
    Liquafinity ultra
    Ecoperm 10,000
    Pigmachrome sx188
