    Things I don't yet know.
  1. Mexican investments questions

    I second the MultiVa vote. The last time the government devalued the peso was in 1994. Many lives and businesses were ruined. I don't think that would happen again, not just for expats fleeing, that's probably not a major income for Mexico, but the Mexican people might be up-in-arms, literally, and that would be a disaster. Cutting graft/embezzlement would help, but that's ain't gonna happen. Guess it's best to just be conservative and as said above, don't put more into Mexico than you could afford to lose.
  2. As said, class actions only help attorneys. There is a better way to go. I would argue false, misleading and deceptive packaging. If you go to Google, you will see several videos where an ink cartridge is taken apart (legally termed "deconstructed") and how little of the sponge that holds the ink is saturated. When you get a cartridge, your mind sees/believes that the cartridge would be "substantially" filled to the available space. This doesn't mean the sponge needs to be saturated to the point of dripping, but when it's only say 25% to 35% saturated, then it's, IMO, false, misleading and deceptive. Since I ditched cartridge printers several years ago for a Brother all-in-one unit (black only), I have been more than happy. And I never used color anyway, better to put a picture you want on a flash drive and take it to a shop and for $18.00 or less, get it printed. Finally, without looking, I'm guessing that HP and the other cartridge sellers have, in their literature, a "forced" arbitration provision that says if you're not happy, you can't go to court or jain a class action. Just a guess. I say ditch the cartridge and go a b/w, all-in-one. I got my Brother for under US$150.00 delivered, and you can refill your cartridge yourself. IMO, can't beat that.
  3. How happy are you with Netflix?

    U.S. law requires all TV sold there to have CC available. No such requirement in Mx. Some movies have subtitles and they show well; you often have choices for languages on subtitles. I have MX Netflix and it's good, just wish there were more movies w/CC English.
