“But I can’t print from my iPad!”
Well, maybe the problem isn’t with your iPad! Why can’t I just email a PDF to my printer from whatever device I’m on, and let the printer figure out how to print? Device drivers suck. Just mentioning them makes me cringe a little. Why can’t someone make peripherals that suit the way I use technology now, rather than expecting newer devices to support an interface that’s decades old?
Printing is one area in technology that is still ripe for innovation. Currently in this space, mediocracy reigns. I can’t think of a single revolutionary product to appear here in the last 10 years. I really wish that Apple would jump in and do something, well, magical.
Add toasters and lie-detectors to that list and I’m game.
