Don’t see yours?
Easily the dodgiest piece of equipment in my office is the multifunction printer and the one I currently own, a Kodak 5300, is the best printer I’ve ever owned.
That said, my Kodak AIO isn’t officially supported by AirPrint yet my family and I can print from our two Macs, two iPod touches, iPad and iPhone, and it’s all due to NetPuting’s AirPrint Activator. This free and completely trouble free OS X (Snow Leopard and Lion compatible) System Preference Pane installs in a flash and, well, it just works.
If you have a printer that doesn’t officially support AirPrint, you owe it to yourself to check out AirPrint Activator…
