Can't See the Forest For the Trees (Killed by the Faxes)

A while back, I posted an entry about IP telephony being dead and cited the forward looking trends of mobilty and device convergence. I may have spoken too soon.

I'm sure we'll head that way eventually, but I may be WAY before my time if we're still worrying about faxes, as indicated by this Network World article.

Seriously, faxing was invented in the 1920's (look it up). With today's technology, can't we scan to email or use a service like eFax? But then again, we still use desk phones while we put our mobile phones down right next to them. Perhaps we'll have stopped using cars to commute before we rid the world of fax machines.

...

... wait, you didn't think I was talking about teleportation or anything did you? I just mean telecommuting!
