I guess this is another form of office equipment that could be becoming obsolete. There was a time when we used fax machines to get something to an individual quickly such as documentation. Yes, these are still used to a certain degree I know that from experience. But now a days with email and scanning going on it would seem that faxing is starting to take a back seat. Maybe the fax machine will still be around for awhile to come but I have a feeling that in maybe another decade it could be going by way of the typewriter. Exactly future generations would wonder what we are talking about when we mention a fax machine the same way young kids do now when we mention a type writer.
