    I was wondering if anyone has heard of someone hacking the iPhone so that you could print from it, to a printer connected to a Router such as the airport extreme. I think this would be a cool feature. Simple but cool

    Nice idea. Maybe it will happen when/if there is more doc edit capabilities...

    I found this on the net.

    1. Create an AppleScript on your home computer which prints the attachment from any email which has 'PrintLW640' (or whatever you like) in its subject.
    2. Open Mail on your iPhone/touch, add 'PrintLW640' (or whatever name you want to give it) to the subject (like 'NewProspects PrintLW640'. Send the e-mail to your home email address. The attachment will automagically be printed...
    3. More than one printer? Add multiple scripts with different printernames (like my PrintLBP5000 for color prints ;-).

    I don't know if I would use this much, but it would be great to have available. I would probably install the app or whatever it was.

    It would be nice if you could print full size web pages to my network printer. They should offer two universal printer drivers as add-ins. One for PCL and one for Postscript.

    Smart move and quick fix for now. Definitely look forward to an ability to connect wi-fi to a printer and print to it. Expect apple to be the first to make one of the lexmark printers "iPhone capable" when filesharing becomes more prominent on the phone.

    On a side now, AirSharing is a GREAT app if you want to do that right now.
