Faxing

It only took 19 years for faxing to become a built-in Mac OS feature. Sure, some Macs came with add-on faxing software like FAXstf. However, the faxing feature that debuted in Mac OS X 10.3, and has been seriously beefed up in 10.4, is Apple’s first attempt at home-grown faxing software.

Using the Mac as a fax machine is a terrific idea, for a lot of reasons. It saves money on paper and fax cartridges, and may spare you the expense of buying a physical fax machine. Faxing from the Mac also eliminates the silly and costly ritual of printing something out just so that you can feed it into a fax machine. And because your fax originates directly from the heart of Mac OS X instead of being scanned by a crummy 200-dpi fax-machine scanner, it blesses your recipient with a great-looking document.
