Receive e-mail without a computer
Don’t leave grandpa out of the loop when your entire family catches up this upcoming holiday season, discussing about the tons of forwarded e-mail, funny pictures, as well as quotes from President Bush concerning “the Google” which he uses to view his ranch via “the Internets”. Should the family’s patriach be too advanced in his age to pick up a mouse and wield a keyboard, why not get him the Computerless E-Mail printer instead?
This color inkjet printer is pretty simple to use and requires a standard AC power to run. It is connected to an e-mail service via a telephone line, doing away with the need for purchasing a high-powered computer with a blazing fast broadband connection. This printer will call the provided toll-free number of the e-mail service on a daily basis, and any new images or messages will be downloaded and subsequently printed. This means those nasty advertisers will be unable to get hold you this e-mail account’s address, hence ensuring that only family members will be guilty of sending Viagra-related e-mail to gramps.
The Computerless E-Mail printer is great for those who want to receive e-mail but do not want the hassle of picking up a computer. Of course, since it uses ink to print out messages, do watch out for the hidden costs as printer ink is expensive. The printer is capable of monitoring ink level like any other normal printers. It costs $149.95 upfront and requries a $9.99 subscription fee on a monthly basis.
