With everyone doing work on the iPad these days, a plethora of apps and services has popped up to help turn the tablet into a mobile workspace. The real challenge is in getting all of those physical paper documents to follow suit. Scanning paper into PDFs that can be easily read on the iPad can be a bit of work. That’s where these two mobile scanners come into play.
No software defines Apple better than iTunes. From its earliest days as SoundJam MP, to its current iteration of the iTunes Store, Cover Flow, and so much more, iTunes has come a long way. This gallery covers every update to every version of iTunes, from 1.0 to 10.0.
On the surface, Kodak’s new ESP 7250 All-in-One Printer seems much like any other device in its class. It prints, it scans, it copies. On closer inspection, however, the 7250 stands out thanks to some notable features and even a plan to save you some green with every print job. And we’re not talking ink colors--we’re talking money.
From the moment you take it out of the box, Doxie will charm you--and not just because it’s adorned with pink heart stickers. Doxie is a portable, easy-to-use scanner that may very well replace that huge hunk of a scanner you have collecting dust in the corner of your home office—as long as your scanning needs fall into the “nothing too complicated” category.
All-in-one printers do everything, but usually at the expense of
excelling at any single job. Not so with the Epson Artisan 810, which

The DocuPen RC800 is a color scanner that weighs less than 2 ounces and measures 8.9 inches long by 0.5 inch wide. The pen-shaped device can make one-pass copies of contracts, signatures, articles, or any other document you might need to digitize on the fly. It’s a good solution when a desktop scanner is either unavailable or impractical. The included PaperPort software isn’t Mac-compatible, but the DocuPen is TWAIN compliant, making setup and use a plug-and-play affair.
