A few months back I got an iPad and shortly after that updated my Blackberry phone with a Samsung Infuse - Android. I love the capabilities I am finding with my two new tools but still go back to my trusted PC when I really need to get a lot of work done, especially when I need to do any printing. Each day, I'm discovering new possibilities though, with my iPad and my Android and I'm amazed over and over again! A perfect example is Cloud printing!
I get the whole Cloud idea as far as documents and photos but I've really had a hard time understanding the concept of Cloud printing and how I could use it. That is until yesterday when my husband was leaving for a business trip and I was reminded of he trip he took a few months ago that resulted in a huge hassle and big headache for me.
He drives a Yukon Denali and I drive a Acura TL. Occasionally we'll switch cars depending on what needs we have, ie. I need to drop a bunch of stuff off at Good Will or pick something up that needs more space than my little TL. My husband's Denali needed to go for some service work and I agreed to take it in for him while he was gone on this business trip. He would use my car to get to the airport and home again the following evening. As chance would have it, he left before I even thought of getting up and before it even dawned on me that I had left my laptop in my car.
For two days, I was inconvenienced by not having my laptop and consequently not able to print anything from home. Though I had learned to do a lot of email and day to day stuff on my iPad, I was incapacitated when it came to printing. If only I had known about Cloud printing! I could have saved myself a lot of time and headaches and sent my printing jobs straight to my home printer (And it's just a regular old printer!) from my iPad or as I now know, my Android. Instead I had to drive to work and spend most of those 2 days there.
This is just one little example, but that new capability of Cloud Printing is huge for me for me ! If you're not familiar with it, look into it - you'll be amazed.
