In a move that could rock the printing world and set Amazon's Kindle e-reader on its ear, HP announced on Tuesday an all-in-one printer that can connect directly to the Internet. The device, the HP Photosmart Premium, will let users download content and make purchases from the Internet. Partners for content on delivery include USA Today; Google; and Fandango. HP also announced the HP Apps Studio, from which users will be able to download apps and content on the Photosmart Premium.


More Technical SDK Details

Actually for those of you looking for more technical details, it's not java, but rather HTML / JavaScript. We've purposefully stuck to emerging web standards, and as much as I'd love to get into more of the details, the HP lawyers won't let me till later this fall. :-)

Personalized Newspapers

This is why HP copied the http://www.Feedjournal.com and created http://www.Tabbloid.com in order to set up a platform for people to receive personalized newspapers. I hope they will open up the platform to competition to the likes of Feedjournal.com. My Question is can you email daily PDF documents to the printer that will printout automatically? If so, it would support lots of content, instead of limiting the stream to HP approved content providers.

For example; I could have http://www.Libertynewsprint.com edition PDF emailed to the printer and automatically printed it out daily if I liked… now that would be useful (and be good for the ink manufacturers) Does it staple too?
