    How do I get a message to Apple to stop messing around with Bonjour, and give us proper printing using drivers and printing to an IP address like grown-up os's do, or allowing app developers into their print interface so we can start printing from our iPad's?

    Much appreciated

    Frustrated

    ROFL never going to happen.

    having developers manage drivers would mean none of the apps would have printing capability. As it is now the printing is handled by iOS and the developers just have to enable printing for their app.

    you have no clue how painful installing printer drivers for the iPad would be. What you should be doing is complaining to what ever brand printer you have to simply put out a firmware update for the printer to support AirPrint.



    P.S. iOS is a grown up OS. its a stripped down version of OS X with a different interface.
