Since it's almost Black Friday, anyone have any experience (good or bad) with a wireless printer (can be all-in-one, I guess, I don't particularly care, since I'd rarely use it) that works with the iPad 3?  I'm assuming HP is still the gold standard for printers, but I haven't purchased one in quite some time, so maybe that's no longer the case (if it never was the case, feel free to educate me on that as long as you don't get all condescending and popsnizzle. ;))

You may know this, but you can get unsupported printers to work if the printer is hooked up to a computer. You can buy cheap software that makes the computer look like an AirPrint client. For example: http://www.macworld....s_favorite.html

The point being that if you see a good deal on a printer, or already have one, lack of wireless or AirPlay support isn't a deal-breaker.

Just a thought.
