Aboxalypse now Forget global warming - HP is well on its way to thoroughly trashing the planet by dispatching kit in the biggest box it can lay its hands on, as witnessed by our previous shock coverage of packaging outrages here, here and here.

Well, there's more. The chaps down at EduGeek last week took delivery of a fuser kit for an HP Colour Laserjet 3500:

Not a bad effort, but try this from an anonymous Antipodean Reg reader whose employer ill-advisedly purchased an HP booklet maker:

Yup, that's the chilling scene after the installers had dumped the packaging in the firm's post room. Our correspondent says employees should be able to access their pigeon holes in around a week, once a crack team of cardboard dismantlers has worked its way through the carnage. ®
