HP has become the first major OEM to deliver support for Google Cloud Print in retail-boxed printers. In an official release, HP announced that its ePrint-enabled printers are now fully Cloud Print compatible. Just sign in to your Google account, pick your HP ePrint device, and you're ready to fire off a print job from anywhere you've got Internet access. Well, as long as your app supports...

TruPrint for iOS supports many more printers than AirPrint, only works on jailbroken devices

Sure, iOS 4.2 and newer versions have AirPrint -- which lets you print from your iDevice to any of the supported printers. However, if you don't own one of the select few models, you're pretty much left without any workable printing support in iOS. That's where TruPrint comes in - if you've decided to step into the dark side and jailbreak your iDevice, that is. TruPrint supports many more...

Trouble printing from Acrobat 9.4.2? Adobe has a few solutions for you to try

Acrobat is a staple of the Windows office domain. Almost all online journals are distributed in the PDF format, and while Acrobat isn't always the best, or lightest way to view PDFs, it's what most PDF authors will turn to. Since Acrobat was updated to 9.4.2, some unfortunate users have been having issues printing with errors like: "Before you can perform print-related tasks such as page setup...

Get AirPrint for Mac OS X working on 10.6.5

AirPrint, Apple's new printing service for iDevices, should be available now for anyone running the golden master of iOS 4.2 on their iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. Supposedly brought into OS X by the recent 10.6.5 pre-release builds, but pulled at the last-minute, AirPrint has been a bit problematic for some. Thankfully, developer Steven Troughton-Smith has come up with a guide to getting it to...

Cloud Print now available in Chromium's about:labs

It's been a little while since we last heard anything significant about Cloud Print -- Google's effort to modernize and webify print queues. We know that HP has plans to deliver compatible printers and that bits of Cloud Print were visible in Chromium back in August, but there haven't been many visible changes since. Until last night -- when the Cloud Print Proxy service appeared as an option...

Print Edit for Firefox lets you easily format Web pages for printing

Some Web pages are easier to print than others. Some provide printer-friendly versions, or printer-friendly CSS, but what do you do when you need to print out a page that isn't so friendly? What if a Web page, printed as-is, would use up a ton of toner or would spread across multiple pages in a confusing hodgepodge of menu items, superfluous banners, and useless navigation links? Well, Print Edit...

ColorExplorer is a full-fledged online color laboratory

ColorExplorer is one of the most massive and exhaustive online color tools that I've ever seen. In fact, it's not really a tool, but more of a toolkit – it's a bunch of separate utilities that allow you to select a palette of colors and then refine it and test how usable it would be in real life. It's basically a bunch of tabs. You have a "My Palettes" tab, which lets you save/load and...

More on Google Cloud Print, and announcing HP's new Web-aware printers

I actually wanted to cover this one a few days ago, when I first heard about HP's new range of 'just email me!' printers -- but we're not a hardware site! However, now that Google's in on the gig and now that we know Chrome OS played a role in HP's printer development... well, now it's software news! (Fast forward to 31:37 in the video above for the Google Cloud Print presentation.) If you...

Paper Critters lets you create printable, embeddable characters - Time Waster

Paper Critters is an online Flash application/gallery that lets you create printable cartoonish "people." The critters are all the same shape -- a big headed, blocky type of "person." However, what you can print on this shape is only limited by your imagination. The site provides a comprehensive editor with lots of "stamps" (like the eyes in the image above) and also allows for freehand drawing,...

Will iPhone OS 4.0 include direct printing from iPhones and iPads?

The help pages for Apple's iPad version of the iWork apps suite are leading some people to conclude that, when iPhone OS 4.0 is unveiled at 10am PDT today, it will include the ability to print documents wirelessly. See, the section on printing in Apple's support documents doesn't say "printing is not supported." It says that "printing directly from iPad is not currently available." A lot could...

Make webpages more printable with The Printliminator

The Printliminator is a bookmarklet that gets any webpage ready to print. Once it's activated, you can click on elements you don't want to print to remove them from the page. If you don't want to do it manually, you can remove all images on the page using one button. Another button applies a nice default print stylesheet. Sometimes there's only one element of a page that's worth printing, and The...

Stupid Windows trick: print to your new USB printer from crappy old DOS programs

Plenty of people out there are still running the odd DOS application - many of them for business purposes. So what are you to do when that trusty old printer breaks down and you can't find a new one with a parallel port? Why not buy a fancy new USB-only printer and make use of a stupid Windows trick that's been around for a while? It's a fairly simple process. Step one is to install the...

WinPrint routes print jobs from DOS to Windows USB printers

As much as I'd like it to not be the case, some of my customers still rely on clunky (but functional) DOS applications to manage their businesses. While their applications tend not to change, their hardware does - which invariably leads to problems. Take printing , example. If your business is stuck with a DOS application and restricts you to a half dozen or so "supported" printers, you may think...

MagCloud hopes that with its services you can be the next publishing mogul. While currently in beta, MagCloud claims that the process is easy enough. Create your magazine according to their specifications and upload it...

GreenPrint - new free edition saves you money and saves the trees

GreenPrint software launched a new free edition today to help home users and non-profits reduce home and office printing waste. Known as GreenPrint World edition, this edition has fewer features than other versions and includes advertising. The software works by analyzing every page of a document sent to the printer, and looks for banner ads, pages with just a logo or URL, legal jargon, etc.,...
