    Are you certain that it can't print through wifi? I mean, Apple has included the iWork apps. I would think you would be able to print from those?

    My first real estate purchase was in the 80's and there was beaucoup paper waste. But I closed on a property last week and the only wasted paper was the business card handed to me after we completed the closing. It was all done electronically. But sad to say, none on a Mac.
    Big sad upside down grins.
    Peace
    Mike

    Not according to the forum posts I've read.

    There are larger issues with emailing documents that lose their formatting.

    A lot of people do a lot of unnecessary printing but then people still write paper checks to pay for things .

    I'm not the one that called him that. Please be clear.
    Have a nice day.
    Peace

    "But I closed on a property last week and the only wasted paper was the business card handed to me after we completed the closing."

    So, there was no paper at all in the transaction? Or no wasted paper?

    That sounds like a steaming load to me Mike.

    I think that was a bit of snark by Tamara

    That was the point of my post. iWork for iPad does not currently support network printing (according to other threads).

    I rarely print stuff when out of the office but need that option available. This is not about the ethics of using paper, it is about the lack of choice.

    I don't know when the last time you read the Terms of Use here, but here are a few reminders:

    +*What is Apple Discussions and how can it help me?*+

    +Post constructive comments and questions. Unless otherwise noted, your Submission should either be a technical support question or a technical support answer+

    + Apple will not tolerate flames or other inappropriate statements, material, or links. Most often, a "flame" is simply a statement that is taunting and thus arbitrarily inflammatory.+

    +Troll—A troll is someone who strives to disrupt a constructive conversation by posting flames or specious arguments . . . If you have a troll in your midst, let an Apple Host know.+

    You asked this question:
    +Is anyone bothered that this device has no support for network printing?+

    You've gotten opinions- and because most don't agree with yours,
    you keep trying to turn it into full blown debate.
    The AD boards are not provided to us to have debates.
    They're for sharing user-to-user support.

    Yes. I am very bothered by it. It's the reason I don't want the iPad (yet) It makes no sense to me to install business apps on the device (iWork apps) without a way to print your spreadsheets, docs, etc...
    I had an Compaq iPaq years ago with Windows Mobile on it and even IT was able to print.

    And as Michael stated, that was the point of my original post. I didn't start the debate on wasting paper in the workplace.

    Even a netbook can print to a network print server. It shouldn't be rocket science to add Bonjour in the next software incarnation.

    "You've gotten opinions- and because most don't agree with yours,

    On the contrary, a few seem to be in agreement.

    "The AD boards are not provided to us to have debates.
    They're for sharing user-to-user support."

    And if I'm not mistaken, they're also to educate us before we make a purchase so that we know what we're getting into.

    It's all good Bee

    Those silly Blackberry users don't know anything either... They have been out for years, and still can't print. How do they survive?

    By the skin of their teeth Steve!

    I think you're going to see a lot of iPads in business and especially in schools.

    I have to refurbish two K-12 computer labs over the summer and I'm seriously going to consider acquiring a fleet of iPads instead of the usual mobile carts loaded with MacBooks or Minis on desktops.

    If the admins won't buy it as a replacement, they ought to look at them for supplemental use.
