It's a bit galling when ........

....... your all-in-one printer/scanner/copier has more of a social life than you do!

It is so state of the art that it comes with its own email address and games console! It gets messages in the night and downloads apps. I can't be sure, but I think it might be GPS enabled and spying for the KGB!

It's so independent that I reckon it's out surfing the interwebs, networking with all the other "all-in-ones" and plotting to take over the world on Facebook!

I'm terrified of it! It seems to turn itself on and off willy-nilly and plays a merry little tune before it coughs, heaves a little sigh and goes quiet. Then just when I think it's safe it decides I should play a game of Sudoku when actually what I really want to do is sort out the scanner settings!

It is also wifi enabled so there is no plug involved. I could be in another room minding my own business on the iPad, accidentally fumble and rest my thumb on "print" and end up with the complete works of Shakespeare on single sided A4 white, when all I wanted was to download the latest freebie from Amazon. And what the wingdings is a proxy port?
 
It copies, sorts photos, scans, sings, dances and does impressions. The one thing it doesn't do is print!

  8. Sigh... funny but so true. Your printer sounds like my android phone of which I have a major love-hate relationship with. It will call people when I am nowhere near it, change settings randomly, and more times than not will disconnect every call I am on. Perhaps it could hook up with your printer for a happily ever after love story!

    Cute picture of the kitties!

  12. What on Earth... o_O
    Can you drive it too maybe?!
    Yikes!
    For what it worth, I'm rubbish with ONE function contraptions, let alone something that can clearly multi-task!

  18. ROFL! This was funny. My printer is just a plain ol' model that doesn't do anything but print, scan and copy. I'd be freaked out if it surfed the net in the middle of the night. Isn't it funny though, how printers are cat magnets? Mine always want to sit on top.

  22. Wow, we're with Jan - we wouldn't want such an independent printer around here. Besides, Percy keeps Jan confused by stepping on the button to turn our own all in one printer contraption on.

    And to answer your question, your blog loads fine. :)
