There comes a time when your current hardware doesn't have the features you need.

 

Time to upgrade to a printer that does, perhaps?

 

I was going to write a long winded whiny reply about how I keep having to buy new things to be compatible with the other new things that I bought, and every new thing I buy just leads to even more things to buy... but instead I'll just sum it up in one word:

 

*grumble*.

I'll sum up the reason it happens with two:

 

Planned obsolescence ;)

Now you just come off as cheap and whiny

 

Also, why even print? Just a waste of paper, just save the recipe on the tablet and glance at it when you need to, printing is such a quaint notion these days

Make a cloud print server with Raspberry Pi. Sucks that you have to spend money on it but it works and you don't need a real PC on, just a power-sipping, cheap ($25) computer (plus a case).

I agree with z0phi3l...

 

If you want to  use the tablet for cooking, then no need to print... Just place the tablet on the stand on the counter... 

 

For the movies, just show the barcode on the phone to the ticket booth.. they will scan the ticket then you go in the theater room. Same thing to the retail stores such as Wal-Mart when you have something to be picked up.

HP's printers with ePrint support shouldn't need a computer with Chrome though. I don't have a printer so I can't try, but can't you associate your @hpeprint address with several Google accounts so different users can print from different devices? It'd certainly suck if you couldn't.

This is correct. Does not need a PC with Chrome. I use it all the time, I just send my print to my HP ePrint email address.

This is so interesting. I've had an Android tablet for about two years now and it never even occurred to me to want to print from it :laugh:

I rarely print, and when I do it's from the computer... otherwise it's meant to take the place of paper. I use it in the kitchen for recipes a lot, for example.

 

Now I want to see if I can find a way, just because... >.>

I agree printing on android is troublesome but luckily for us 4.4 brings new improvements

 

 

Android 4.4 introduces native platform support for printing, along with APIs for managing printing and adding new types of printer support. The platform provides a print manager that mediates between apps requesting printing and installed print services that handle print requests. The print manager provides shared services and a system UI for printing, giving users consistent control over printing from any app. The print manager also ensures the security of content as it's passed across processes, from an app to a print service.

For occasional use an alternative would be to print to pdf and use Dropbox,Microsoft or Google drive to transfer it to a PC for printing

Sorry for my frustration, but I would have thought PRINTING would be a pretty basic function, one to be included with Android OS, but apparently not!  

 

 

It is. Just open your browser, navigate to windows.com, order any tablet you fancy.
