Steve Jobs reportedly replied to an Apple customer’s eMail, saying that printing would eventually make its way to the iPad, the L.A. Times reports. According to a report in MacRumors, Jobs responded to a customer who asked him why the ability to print wasn’t available. “Why no printing on the iPad? What gives?” the customer asked, according to the report. Jobs’ simple reply: “It will come.” Unfortunately, Apple’s chief executive didn’t give a time frame on how long it would be before the feature makes its way to the iPad. But one thing is certain: It should be coming sooner rather than later. The ability to print is arguably one of the most glaring omissions in the iPad. Those attempting to print documents or eMails will quickly find that there’s no way to communicate with a printer.
