According to Forbes, NECCO, the company famous for its Valentine's Day heart-shaped candies, unofficially declared the fax machine a tech dinosaur in 2013 when it replaced the phrase "Fax Me" with "Text Me."
While the fax machine is slowly being phased out, there are still plenty of businesses that use it. People in the legal, finance and medical industries still rely on fax machines for essential documents. It's also used by marketers to help get their message across in an increasingly digital world, where their emails can be deleted with one simple click.
That's all great for doctors, lawyers and business executives who send faxes, but what about the rest of us? Not everyone has access to a fax machine.
