Epson Epson Stylus Color 740

Epson 740i out of ink

My nice blue 'n ice 740 works pretty well most of the time (I've gotten some strange problems with software drivers, but forgetting that...) . However, when I ran out of color ink recently, even when I wanted to print in black-ink only, it wouldn't let me print at all. A dialog kept popping up saying I needed to install a color ink tank, or cancel the printing! This seems like a little tricky way of getting people to buy ink tanks... is there any way to get around this "feature"?
I'm on a Mac, too.
You didn't think that they really made money selling those printers at $79 each. They make it on the ink. There's no workaround on it and I wouldn't run the cartridge down too much or you'll screw the head up.
