Fax machines – who still uses these stupid things?

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

Quote of the day from some ppl on Reddit, the sentiment of which I agree with wholly:

Order a pizza online = Secure encrypted SSL certificate HTTPS page, authenticating against the digital Fort Knox of Visa’s card database.

Buy a half million dollar house = some sixty five year old lady hand writes on a piece of paper and faxes it across a copper phone line to a another fax machine, where it sits on top until the next one comes in and they both fall on the floor. The clean lady has even odds of touching it before the loan officer.

Nice.
