can anybody tell me why this never came out? I mean, a combo mac/fax/scanner/phone/printer seems like a sewwt idea. or, this being from 1993, was it simply too far ahead of it's time?

sorry, guys, I have been intrenched in Apple/mac prototypes that never shipped. and I cant quite afford the $150 for the AppleDesign book, which from what I have heard has alot of prototpes in it.

Oh, Yeah

I can make one of these! All I have to get is an old PowerBook Duo 230, a StyleWriter, an Apple-branded scanner, and a fax (probably a Canon). Then, I need a roll of duct tape and some J-B Weld...
