Try myfax.com. You can send and receive faxes on your computer. Use a PDF editor like PDFPenPro to complete faxes you receive and add signatures, then fax it back. Some of the world still demands this. In fact, a local phone company / ISP couldn't verify me at my non-working land-line number so I had to fax them… » 1/28/15 5:50pm Wednesday 5:50pm

As a user, it would be nice to have an option. Either this app can ALWAYS access and modify my contacts, or this app WILL ASK FOR PERMISSION when it does so. I would also like a way to see a complete log of exactly what each app accessed, and when, of this 'private' data. » 1/27/15 8:59pm Tuesday 8:59pm

The big ISP's are the regulators of we people. What you call regulation is actually government keeping use from being regulated. It's like the bill of rights, which specify that the big gorilla (government) shalt not do certain bad things.

They had to bill to a British address so I used Bank of America in London, which billed my local Bank of America in Los Gatos, California, every month. I'd arrive and the phone… » 12/08/14 2:19pm 12/08/14 2:19pm

A lot of our freedoms [supposedly] come from constitutional amendments that specify certain bad actions that an institution, Congress, is not… » 11/10/14 12:08pm 11/10/14 12:08pm

Actually, there was no design nor construction of this computer in any garage. It was designed and built in my HP cubicle at night and in my Cupertino apartment. The designs were passed out freely with no copyright notice so that others could build a useful computer at low cost. Others even had hand-built versions of… » 11/10/14 11:24am 11/10/14 11:24am

I use voice control for everything I can. We should not memorized structured procedures to get tasks done when the voice is so human and robust. It's what they said about 'graphics' back in the [memorized command] DOS days. I can say "Hey Siri, what is the distance from San Francisco to Dallas?" and get an answer… » 11/08/14 10:50am 11/08/14 10:50am
