Valerie wants to know if she can print something from her Android phone. Leo says she can, using Google Cloud Print. It uses the Internet and would let her print from anywhere in the world, but she would need a printer that supports it. She can also send it to Kinkos. Apple has AirPrint for the iPad and iPhone as well.

Stan has an HP all-in-one printer that he wants to print to from his Samsung Galaxy SIII via Google Cloud Print. When he prints images, it comes out in black and white, not color. Leo says to make sure the printer isn't defaulting to black and white. He can check in printer settings for that.
Web8880 in the chatroom says that it's a known bug. Color may be an advanced option in Chrome's settings.
Andy is looking at getting a Craig Android Tablet, because it's pretty cheap. Leo says that everyone is making an Android tablet these days because Google gives away Android for free. Andy wants to know if he'll be able to print with it.
Patricia's boss has put in a code requirement so they can track what is being printed. It's corrupted the drivers, though, and the ones they've provided don't work on the Mac. Leo suggests trying Google Cloud Print. This will allows her to print via the internet to any printer.
The Chatroom has found a fix from Worchester Polytechnic Institute that will allow Patricia to print from her Mac.
