One For The Luddites
LAS VEGAS - There are 65 million Americans who neither have nor want a computer, Mike Migliore, director of software engineering for a private California company tells me. Therein lies an ironic, yet intersting niche for a company here at a huge show featuring all manner of high tech geekery: For those, Presto makes a printer-like $149 device that you give to your non-tech, non-Internet connected friend or family member, then set up an email address for them (on a computer that the giver presumably does have).
Then the Presto printer-thing, plugged into a regular analog phone line, picks up email for them, printing out things like photos, messages, even calendar reminders and the like. Attachments? No problem, those come out in printed form, too, without a user's prompting.
