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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
