I thought the article was interesting but somewhat misleading. "How to set up printing from tablets and phones" and the first thing I do is get a new printer, chuck the old all because I got a new phone that wants to dictate my life. What's wrong with this picture?
I am all for innovation but when I have to build a new house because a particular paint type/color I like would not work on/adhere to my current (in need of painting) home, someone needs to reset the idiot box.
But that's exactly what is being done. What's wrong with getting a functional phone/device that FITS your office/home/lifestyle instead of getting an office/home/lifestyle that fits your phone/device? OK so how about someone creating an APP/API that will do the printer compatibility/conversion instead of buying a printer just cause new phone doesn't like the old one? Granted there is a limit to backward compatibility as it cannot be supported forever. But I think we are allowing technology to distort our sensibilities and rationalization while manufacturers oil the hamster wheels and take us to the cleaners.
Kudos to those using cloud to solve this issue.
