How do I print directly to a printer over the internet - with no PC connected?

I've done lots of research and the only answer seems to be HP 'ePrint' enabled printers

I wanted to know why no other manufacturers had been able to achieve the same?
I think I'm right in saying that HP have had this technology for 2/3 years now

I'm not sure if it's been an over night success... but it's a great thing to have

It's something I'd really need to do - but I'd rather have some choice at least
(My preference is always to use Canon)

ALSO: if anyone has used ePrint before... can someone confirm if you can actually print directly from the internet - say for example if sent from a specific email address (as opposed to having a special software that sits on your sending device) - the bit I'm not sure about is how they stop spammers sending email that gets printed!

Thanks

You can do it with any printer that is connected to a LAN (ie: not connected to a PC). However, you will have to allow access to the network to reach the printer. Thus creating hole in your network security.
