Tim Cook: iPhone 5 postponed, all ahead on iPrinters [Humor]

In classic The Onion fashion, they're lampooning Apple's [brand new CEO, with a nod to his HP roots. That's right -- printers.

incoming CEO Tim Cook called a meeting of shareholders and members of the press Thursday morning to announce that he envisioned printers as the company’s future. “Laser, ink-jet, double-sided, color, black-and-white—the future of technology is in printers. I am absolutely convinced of that,”

The whole thing is worth a read. And a smile. And our desperate hopes that life never ends up imitating this satirical art.

All jokes aside, if Apple creates a printer that "just works" like everything else they make does, and doesn't need drivers specific to each operating system, and will just "plug and play" as easily as it sounds... well, I'd give them what's left of my soul.

"doesn't need drivers specific to each operating system".... You noob, it does on Apple as well, but there is only 1 OS... So... No choice means that "things just work"...

I'm well aware there is only 1 OS for Apple, but I'm talking about a printer that will work with any OS, be it Apple, Microsoft, or some kind of Unix.

"the future of technology is in printers"
Yeah.... Okay. I haven't used my printer in over a year when I had to print a leper for college. Everything is digital. There is hardly ever a need to print. That's the stupidest thing I have heard all day!
