...not to mention UPS and FEDEX shops still offer "faques" service for a very small fee...i just sent some legal documents with my signature to my bank at their request...
so just because it's not so common anymore doesn't mean it's going away soon (remember when it was called "telefacimile" and used a rotating drum for scanning?).
and as for the pots modem, many small stores still use them, they are much cheaper than dsl or satellite links, albeit painfully slow...
Oh, yeah, the Publix store near me just got a brand new phaques machine, so apparently somebody is still making them.
