    I was printing from my iPad using WePrint and PrintNshare. I didn't notice that I had accidentally chosen my next door neighbours HP wireless printer. Five minutes later, a knock on the door to ask me if I had "lost" something :) he is a mate, and saw the funny side of full colour pages which had nothing to do with him coming out of his printer. Lol

    Teehee, that could be dangerous. Or embarrassing. Or both!

    Yes, thank god he is a friend! I will buy a wireless printer when one I like comes out. The weird thing is that his HP is not supposed to be iPad compatible :) I shall take care in future!

    But remember that PrintNShare will wirelessly print to non-AirPrint printers directly - so I'm guessing that PrintNShare 'found' your neighbour's printer and was able to print to it.....

    Wow, that could have been embarrassing. A private email or something. Glad you posted this, it would be good if everyone knew this!

    Good, that you brought this thread to light though, I would never have known this myself. Not that I've got a printer but if I did get one, it would be worth knowing this! Thanks for bringing it up!
