There are businesses who still insist on using them to
print fan-fold multi-part forms and checks. Just now
there's a message on my answering machine from a business
who needs a replacement for the last (used) one I found
for them.

I know there are laser-friendly check forms, and anyone printing
multiple forms could just as easily print N copies, but to
get that nifty colored paper "the blue ones go to accounting"
feature, you'd need a laser printer and software with the ability
to pull colored paper from separate trays.

Once you start digging this deep, though, you might start
asking why so many businesses still rely on paper, and that
may cause you to question deeply-held beliefs such as that
computers are or are not trustworthy for doing business.
