Instead of scanner/fax printer. For those who are worried about losing digital copies of douments, but are more worried about someone going through their rubbish looking for personal information. Could be connected directly to a hamster cage.

       I would not mind one of these - my shredder is near my printer- they share a power outlet and make a handsome couple. I don't know if they have any plans for the future....

       An indiscriminatory fax/shredder would be useful for those who receive only junk faxes.

       This is one of worst ideas I've ever seen.   

       So is the idea to keep the shredded documents to later re-assemble them if needed? And would the digital copy be deleted?
