A while back we started shopping around for a copier/scanner/fax/printer. We really wanted the fax part above all else; we’ve got a printer so unless it does something special then we don’t need it.

That device I mentioned? I would call it an “all-in-one”. But! Some people might not, apparently.

As a random example this HP printer is an all-in-one… but it lacks a fax. This HP printer is an all-in-one… with a fax. That’s, uh, clear!

Can I make a suggestion? Devices without a fax could be called Three-in-Ones. It may upset a few people but it’ll make shopping for these things easier. And isn’t that what’s important?

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
