My Aunt just bought a new iMac, and was wondering how to fax from it, through her printer/scanner/copier. I told her she needed the Apple modem, but it seems like it's no longer available at the Apple store. I saw a third party one at U o of T's computer shop downtown a couple of weeks ago, I guess it'll have to do.
How did I miss this? I read like 8 Mac web sites daily.
I think macintouch.com was covering this. The gist of the discussion was that the usb modems didn't work reliably with the more recent Macs in some configurations (so buying one elsewhere may not be a solution). Rather than working on making make them compatible, Apple apparently just dropped them.
Because faxing is now so antiquated that even the Amish are allowed to do it.
Maybe so but it works easily for things like getting documents signed quickly. This is important in certain sectors in particular, around these parts at least, lawyers offices and real estate businesses depend to a considerable degree on fax.
