    If this makes the iPad capable of printing without having to pay for an extra app, I'm all for it.

    I agree, although Printopeia is cheap and works well. The problem to me is having to have a print server running continuosly.

    I'd just be glad to see the entire driver issue disappear. Had a problem with a recent update on Brother Printers through Software Update that disabled my network printing. I ended up rolling back to the previous driver to fix the problem and am ignoring the Software Updater on this until OS X 10.7.1 before I try again.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
