Untangling Wireless Printing

Wireless printing is one of those great ideas that lacks something in actual implementation. The thought of being able to access a printer without a cable being involved is appealing, and the technology is pretty cool. However, a lot of different standards make the whole thing more complex than it should be. This is always a problem with new technology; more than one manufacturer comes up with a solution to a perceived problem, and confusion ensues. HowToGeek has a new article that goes over the different approaches and what may work best for you.
The wireless printing space is a bit of a mess, and is unnecessarily confusing. However, the good part is that these standard aren’t mutually exclusive. You can easily get a new printer that supports standard Wi-Fi printing, Apple AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, and the printer manufacturer’s own solution. Then, you can choose the type or printer connection that works for you on whatever device you’re using at the time.
