It’s not that I’m unimpressed by what PrintDreams technology can do. I actually think it’s pretty clever to have a handheld printer that stores information and can print out in random directions as you slide it across a piece of paper. It’s just that I work in an office that’s as paper free as possible (with the exception of my diary / notebook which has to be handwritten or I’ll forget everything). And I think that if you don’t work in a paper free office, you should try to, using initiatives like GreenPrint.
But still, from the end of this year / beginning of next, you’ll be able to drop $200-odd on a handheld, fairly portable printer which is adaptable to many awkward media that could never go through a conventional printer. So if you must waste paper, do it creatively.
