Fax-only process flow in 2010? From Apple???

February 23rd, 2010

I’m in the process of joining the Apple iPhone Developer Program, and I’ve just been asked to fax my business info to them. Here is my email response:

Is there an alternative method for sending you my articles of incorporation? I can email them as a PDF file or upload them securely to your site.

Even if I could get the fax modem working on one of my old machines, I’m not sure that it would work over my VOIP phone line with an analog adapter, and I don’t have a time machine to transport me back to 1999 when I last needed a fax machine, especially to communicate with the developer program of one of the most advanced tech companies on the planet.

Really, does anyone in the technology biz still use a Fax machine? Does anyone still have a computer with a modem as standard equipment?

  1. Banks are famous for this as well. Welcome to 1999.
