    "Bonjour uses multicast Domain Name System service records to locate devices such as printers, as well as other computers, and the services that those devices offer."

    Alright well I'm an idiot when it comes to computers, but it looks like:

    it searches for other devices, so how a phone with bluetooth looks for another phone. An example would be a printer. A printer that is compatible with Apple will automatically be detected by the software. So you log on, the printer will be ready to use?

    Anyone who knows about this, am I on the right track or am I here
