While I have not used the device I am speaking of, I have read about it and it sounds really cool. 

What is it?  The HP Printing Mailbox.

Quite simply, you hook it up to electricity and a phone line.  Then the person, say Grandma, can receive email that automatically prints…think of it like a fax machine…and she doesn’t have to own a computer or know anything about email or attachments etc.

Everyone in the family can send email to this person, with photos attached even, and the email and the photo auto print!  No more leaving the parents or grandparents out of the modern age simply because they do not want or need a PC.
