The secret to iPad printing

Apple's iPad can't print, you say? Pshaw. You just have to know the secret to making it happen.

For every flaw in Apple's iPad, there's a fix just waiting to be found.

Now, I'm not talking about problems like those Wi-Fi woes that plagued people during the iPad's early days; Apple itself offered up a solution there. I'm talking about the iPad's most central limitations -- the common functions that, for whatever reason, Apple decided not to address.

You see, while Apple's iPad is adept at performing certain advanced tasks -- things like streaming video, for example, or making salsa -- it leaves you out in the cold when it comes to others.

One of the most common complaints: The iPad doesn't connect to much, and that makes printing a serious challenge.

But fear not, Apple fanatics: The answer has arrived.

Apple's iPad: The Printing Fix

The good folks at The Form Group, an Ohio-based visual design firm, have come up with a fantastic workaround that lets you print directly from your iPad. No major modifications are needed, and you'll be up and running in minutes.

Prepare yourself -- this is some seriously high-tech stuff.

If that isn't magical and revolutionary, I don't know what is.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
