Faxploit turns archaic technology into a security risk

The combined might of email, scanners, and computers should have made the venerable fax machine obsolete right? Millennials might laugh at it and presume it went the way of the floppy disk but it might shock them to know that more 300 million fax numbers still exist.

HP IonTouch is a rewritable, inkless printing system

Ink is so permanent. In many cases, that is the ideal. But there are instances where permanence is not just uneconomical but also inefficient.
