Is Kindle considering implementing wireless printing? It would certainly be handy to print an excerpt from a newspaper or a recipe by sending it from my Kindle through my home network to my wireless printer.

No, it doesn't. You can place the Kindle on a copier or scanner and print the resulting picture. You can copy & paste from K4PC as well.

I would love the ability to wireless print my notes/highlights from my kindle!

That would actually be a pretty big deal. In addition to providing the wireless (blue tooth?) programming and the program to print, they would need to have printer drivers for all the available printers and manage updates to those drivers.

I hadn't thought of that, but I wondered about copyright infringment...

yeah... copyright infringement was my first thought, too...

David, not directly, but for items from the Kindle store it's pretty easy.

The highlights and notes you make on those show up at

From there, you can copy and paste them and then print them. If your computer can print wirelessly to your printer, you won't have had to use a cable the whole way. :)

Only items from the Kindle store work, and that is probably affected by copyright issues, as you suggest. The publishers in the Kindle store put a clipping limit they determine, meaning they have allowed you that amount of "clipping". If Amazon stored your notes from a non-Kindle store book, they couldn't know that you had the rights for those.

If you want to print clippings from something not brought from the kindle store, connect your kindle to the computer and open the my clippings file (not sure what the file name is). Then you can copy or print your clippings.
