Interesting. I read an article on PC-Link (America Online) from a man who says that the best technological advance in the past 15 years hasn’t been the PC, but the FAX machine!

In 1992, that was true about the fax machine. It would be YEARS before e-mail would dominate and we still had to do faxes 25+ years after this post. Also: 1992-15=1977 meaning the author of the article I read was referring to a period from 1977-1992 where he named fax machines as the greatest advance of that era: and it was in that period.

You know something, he’s right. No other item is so simple to use and yet so powerful! It has just enough mysticism to keep us curious, while allowing almost EVERYONE to be able to use it! Just press GO and you’re on your way!
 
Most people are confused by PC’s, though. They know they’re good for something, but{_ no one’s really sure for what! I might repost it if anyone’s interested.

BTW: Relevence to Tandy 1000’s? Well, I see Deskmate as the FAX machine of the PC world. Any thoughts?
