How I Name My Printers

At home, we have two printers that I set up so the whole family can print. Their names were HP LaserJet xxx and Epson xxx, the default my OS gave them. Things were fine until my wife and kids start asking me which one is the color printer.

What? Don’t they know that the Epson printer is the color one? The truth is, for the people who wants to print, they don’t care if the printer is laser or inkjet, made by HP or Epson. All they care about is which one can print in color and which one cannot.

Finally, I named them Black & White Printer and Color Printer. This makes a lot of sense for them: they don’t have to wonder which one is which. It also releases me of the answering duty.
