Printing: it is coming. Well yeah, duh.

By now you’ve probably seen the coverage of El Jobso’s most recent email with the masses, wherein he says, of printing from the iPad, “it is coming.”

Well of *course* it’s coming!!

I mean look, at the end of the day this will be another in an ongoing list of opportunities for people to point fingers, gripe about Apple’s priorities and resource allocation, and whine about features that should’ve been there in the first place. And to a degree, they’re right.

What amazes me though is the way this is covered as if it’s really a surprise. It’s as if people haven’t learned the lessons taught so repeatedly by the iPhone OS over the last three years. Let’s all say it together people:

This. Thing. Gets. Better. And. Better. All. The. Time.

Whether via apps or OS updates, the iPad is closing in rapidly on rapidly on being fully capable as a replacement – not supplementary – machine for all but coders, photoshoppers, and heavy duty video editors. And even they will be able to do their work on future iterations. Just you wait and see..


About Tony Moody

I make movies. I wield a Les Paul and an iPad. I consume media - copious amounts. And I dabble in assorted nonsense. What do you do?

    I agree, and that is the same vision I have about the iPhone OS running the iPad. It is going to get more advanced while keeping the simplicity it got famous for. I can not wait to see what is in store in iPad OS 4.0 in the fall. Printing support coming straight from apple is great.

    Sent from my iPad! 🙂

    I started reading this blog after listening to (and totally agreeing with) you on the ipadpossibilitiespodcast. I am a late commer to both but have been psyched about the iPad since the first rumours.

    I have just left college and can’t afford an iPhone 4 and an iPad so I am living vicariously through blogs and podcasts. I read through this whole blog in one sitting and am desperately wanting more. Please continue. Soon?

    I hope all is well at home and work… I’m off to find another blog to get my ‘fix’ for now but (to continue the merephor) your blog has the best ‘sh*t’!
