As the years go by, I realise that there are some business tools that used to be part of my workplace but now belong to the museum.
Now this would be around 1992 when I started my first job at Arthur Andersen & Co. in Nigeria (Even the Company had not yet split into Andersen Consulting and Arthur Andersen (now KPMG)
As I look at my last child, my 6 year old daughter flipping through the pages of her ebook on my iPad, I know that she will never use these "archaic" business tools.
For those who used these tools, roll with me. For those who do not know what I am talking about, just read and learn. (I got the appropriate definitions from Wikipedia)
1. The Fax machine - Fax (short for facsimile), sometimes called telecopying, is the telephonic transmission of scanned printed material (both text and images), normally to a telephone number connected to a printer or other output device. The original document is scanned with a fax machine (or a telecopier), which processes the contents (text or images) as a single fixed graphic image, converting it into a bitmap, and then transmitting it through the telephone system. The receiving fax machine reconverts the coded image, printing a paper copy.
4. Correction Fluid. A correction fluid is an opaque, white fluid applied to paper to mask errors in text. Once dried, it can be written over. It is typically packaged in small bottles, and the lid has an attached brush (or a triangular piece of foam) which dips into the bottle. The brush is used to apply the fluid onto the paper.
