The technology of the past…

Recently I decided that it was time to begin cleaning out my basement, also known as my office. I’ve got a few monitors, a couple of desks, a standing desk, an old desktop computer with a Core i7 processor that may as well have its own power line coming in from the Tennesee Valley Authority… I found anything from null modem cables to my original iPod Shuffle (remember that USB stick thingy with a plug for earphones?).  I also realized while rummaging amongst things and looking at my Canon printer / scanner / fax machine that it’s been forever and a day since I’ve sent a fax… wait, what’s a fax? You know, a facsimile… that technology that’s used as an accepted technology for signed contracts. If you’re seeking further education on the Fax machine, check out the Wikipedia article over here – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fax

On some occasions, when necessary, I do find myself using GoDaddy’s eFax service to be able to send a copy of a document. But for the most part, it seems like this is a lost technology. So much that it made Scott Adams write a comic about it this morning… enjoy.

Also, if you happen to have an old iPod Shuffle, go ahead and do the Shuffle… cuz every day I’m shufflin’.
