That seems like a reasonable answer.

Except hunting for the cheapest printer I could bear to own at Staples in December — for my wife — showed a heck of lot of them had network capability built-in.

OK, Staples is business-oriented. But I'd think that a $69 price will put a lot more network printers online.

Plus, I'd say that people with Internet Tablets are more likely to have network printers (than the general populace) simply because they are already WiFi-ing and you've got to figure the NIT they own is probably computer number 3 or 4 in the house.

Any printer connected to a Linux (or other *nix) box is a network printer too..
(which means that even my retired father has a network printer)
