oh yeah, that really justifies what they are doing - people are used to seeing ads, who why not give them more? and this time, we will make it use their paper, and their highly expensive printer ink. and let me guess, they will market it for cheap, and put this important piece of info into the smallprint...figures. lets see how many poor sods will get sucked into this...

If they actually do this someone will probably find a way to crack it in a way that will make it stop receiving spam

Actually the printers dont work by having their own ip, its based on each being assigned its own email address.

I might be interested if in return of giving me ads, they gave me free printer ink and paper for it for life.

Jonwall -=> I think you are wrong. At least 5 sources I've read said that the ePrinters have both an email address and an IP.

Well, how would you want them to work without an IP? They have to have one.

My wireless printer has its own IP. It needs an address to send data packets to.

technically they do only because its on your home network, it would have the same external ip as any machine in your house, but the jobs are sent to the email address, not the ip address.

Hah, just imagine what it would be like to turn in a research paper with advertisements all over it.

Jonwall is right. It would have the same external ip address as all other devices, however should have it's own internal ip address. I could be wrong but to have it's own external ip would require another dedicated cable modem.
