Which is it? Laser or inkjet? The article says "HP laser printers", but the quote says "would continuously heat up the printer's fuser — which is designed to dry the ink". I believe that "fuser"s are used in laser printers to fuse the toner to the paper.

Well, broadly speaking, isn't toner a kind of ink? Or no? Does ink necessarily mean a chemical which binds with the fibers, wheras toner just gets glued on?

In 'layman speak' it seemed comprehensible, anyway.
