Absolutely! I can print things on the road and tell my wife(who is not so tech savvy) it's on the printer. My only concern however is what if someone accidentally e-mails my printer a 500 pages?

It would definitely be interesting.

But the only thing I am concerned about is, my printer printing all those Nigeria bank account hoax and enlarge your penis junk mails sent to it.

@No more HP's for me. All printers rip you off on the ink no matter what brand it is. That is exactly why you just refill your ink so you can reuse the cartridge. Refill it is when it's about half full. I have refilled my HP ink cartridge over 10 times already and have had no problems with it.

It's not a bad idea. Your documents "emails" would be stored in Gmail(in the cloud). The printer downloads the document only if the user decides to print it. It's the next evolutionary step in faxing! And to think it only took 20 years! LOL I blog about this on my site http://avillacampa.homeserver.com/blog/

this would be cool for about 5 minutes until some stupid spammer sends 100 pages to your printer and depletes all your comsumables.

spam can be countered easily in this situation ie require a password to print. spamming wont be a prob.

This feature has been around in all kyocera network printers for approximately 5 years! (pop3 printing).
What impresses me with HP devices is the insane consumables oriented business model (why do people still buy this crap?), not the features !

seems like someone could easily spam your printer w/ adds, or photos that take up allot of ink and resources. I hope there would be some way to filter content to it, or approve every file before its printed

Good idea, i.e. for my mom or someone without a computer. (Of course why then would she have internet.) "Can you send me some new pics of the kids?", "Sure thing, coming right up!". Sounds good to me. BUT, I agree with the spam concern. Hope Google has some for of filter to let only the e-mails pass you want to or else HP is going to be giddy over revamped ink sales based on junk mail alone.
