About a year ago, I purchased a mobile scanner (Pentax DSmobile 600 Scanner). It was prompted by a trip I took in December 2009. It’s a great tool to use when on the go and certainly saves me from having to photocopy papers. You can read more at my previous post, Another New Gadget - Mobile Scanner.
I never use it at home, as I have a flatbed scanner as part of my printer. But there is a limitation with my flatbed scanner…I can’t scan legal-size documents in their entirety. I’ve been debating how to digitize get my legal-size documents, thinking one day I would head to Kinko’s as they probably have a larger scanner. The other day it occurred to me, why not use the portable scanner? Paper is fed through the scanner, which can handle legal-size documents. So that’s what I did today. Only took me a year to figure this handy little tidbit out ;)
