The Magic is in the Tubes

“The gains shown by the iPhone and Android show what is possible when phones are built with fully capable browsers and support a rich array of Web apps.” – Techcrunch

The most kick-ass mind-blowing iPhone, Crackberry or it’s-not-a-Google-phone is naught but a brick without an always-on ubiquitous wireless internet connection.*

Apple may have revolutionized the user-experience of the smartphone, but the Blackberry’s early success proved that the crux of the device’s addictiveness lies in the tubes.

Installing the Lexmark P4350 on Mac OS X Leopard

  1. Uninstall the printer, if already installed from a previous version of OS X, or from previous attempts to install Lexmark’s drivers
  2. Open Finder, click on your HD, find Library/Printers/Lexmark, and rename it to Lexmark.bak
  3. Reboot
  4. Insert your Leopard DVD, double-click Optional Installs, double-click Optional Installs.mpkg
  5. When Optional Installs has loaded, open Printer Drivers, and check the box next to Lexmark, then finish the installation process.
  6. Open System Preferences, and then Printer and Fax
  7. Click the + sign to add a new printer
  8. Your P4350 should show up as “4300 Series Printer” in the list. Select it.
  9. The dialog may spin for a few minutes. When done, it will enable the driver selection list. Select “4300 Series” from the list and click OK.

You should now be able to print. I did this on two different Macs, and it worked for both.
