An Old-Fashioned Approach to Email

by Liam

Celery
This gadget probably sounds quite funny to anyone reading about it, however for the less technologically inclined, it may be the greatest thing since sliced bread (which they probably witnessed!). Basically, the Celery emailing system allows you to send emails without having to own a computer.

The Celery device is basically a printer and scanner. To send an email, you simply write out the email, put it in the slot, press 2 buttons and your email is scanned and sent to the recipient. Very easy!

When you receive an email, your phone will ring. When you pick up the phone, your email is automatically printed out by the printer. You don’t even have to touch the Celery machine!

Probably the most interesting part about this gadget is that it requires no outside computing equipment and it doesn’t even require an Internet connection! You simply plug it into your phone line and the Celery service will allow you to send and receive emails.

If you’re not home you can still get your Celery emails. As long as you have an answering machine or some sort of auto-answering device, the email will be printed off so you can pick it up when you get home.

I think this would be a really neat thing to have for an older relative, and it’s nice to see that there are some options to get older generations involved in technology.

For pricing and other information, check out Celery’s website.

So….it is a fax machine, basically.

How is this new or different?

It’s not the device, it’s the service that’s revolutionary.

Celery took the everyday, easy to use color fax machine and made it into a two-way email device, except instead of fax >>> fax, it is fax >> email, and email >>> fax.

The users can now enjoy all the benefits of communicating with their higher tech family and friends without the high tech interface, cost or complexity. It’s incredibly simple to use.
