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.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
