There's more to it than this, I have one of these printers and don't use it very often, however last night I was sat playing BF3 and notice something out the corner of my eye. The thing had switched itself on and it's front end on the tablet thing was staring at me with the blue light on the printer flashing, as if it was trying to communicate with me, as if it felt the need to make me acknowledge it's presence.

What if ICANN doesn’t play ball? Well, the legislation should then direct...

How long do you think the webOS app catalog will continue to operate after the last #webOS device has been sold? - Rod Whitby of webosinternals https://twitter.com/#!/webosinternals/status/132564454041858048 It’s something of a sobering wake up call which is happening more and more often these days.
