print on demand

June 18, 2008

I impulse-bought a printer today. Yeah, a great pair of Rainbow flipflops would have been more fun, but this was a good decision. We went to the shop to buy golf tees and wound up with a calla lily, an ice chest, luggage tags…and an all-in-one printer/scanner/copier/fax. It was sitting at the end of a close-out aisle and was priced so low it would have been silly to pass it up. Besides the price ($70), it had the magic words on the box: “WiFi.”

I am all about WiFi these days. There is even an international symbol for WiFi, have you noticed? And a WiFi printer? You mean I can be writing my NINC column on the patio and printing out the draft without being anywhere near the printer? Yeah, baby!

Even better–the installation went without a hitch. Since I live in terror of having to crawl under my desk and mess with my router and other scary stuff, this is a big deal for me. I want everything to install in 90 seconds, and for it all to work.

So this is old news to a lot of you, but I bet there are plenty more who haven’t taken the plunge. C’mon in! I took the WiFi printer plunge!

  • I can sit on my couch, with my laptop and send items to the printer, two rooms away. I LOVE it. WiFi is the only way to go. Just wish it worked as well at school as it does at home. Of course, no couch at school.

  • That is awesome! OK, our apartment is really small, but the husband uses his laptop all around the place (with a wireless router thingy) and I use the PC. So, when he has to print something, he e-mails it to me or takes over the computer. This would be great. Plus, our printer was a free hand-me-down anyway. We’ll have to be on the look out for one.
