portable scanner

Monday, December 3rd, 2007

Scanners are a bright idea; after all, they use light receptors much as a camera does, to reproduce data images. Where the computer scanner was once regarded as an accessory, or even luxury, more and more working professionals now recognize that having a scanner is almost indispensable. For anyone who spends any amount of time on the road, a portable scanner is more than desirable: it’s a lifeline. As the quality of available scanning has increased, there’s been a comparative lagging in technology for lightweight, quality portable scanners. Unfortunately, there have been too few great options…until now.

Because there are five types of scanners¹ being manufactured, many consumers have often had to deal with limitations between what they need scanned and the equipment available at the moment. Portable scanners have been a hoped-for answer to a real need in affordable and quality scanning. It seems that the ScanShell 2000N is poised to set a new standard in portable scanning.

Not too many people have wanted to carry a bulky additional scanner with their laptop. On the other hand, many lightweight scanners simply failed to deliver quality reproduction or could accommodate any major demands on use, such as multiple page documents. Many so-called “portable scanners” also had the effect of making reproduction images (or targets) either hard to read, or reflecting badly
as a sales or communication tool.

The ScanShell 2000N (2000NR) portable scanner is the ideal A4 color scanner for the busy professionals and executives. This lightweight and convenient scanner is powered using only the USB 2.0 port. The ScanShell 2000N (2000NR)is conveniently carried along with a laptop and requires a minimal footprint on the desktop.

The portable scanner enables users to scan and organize all of business documents, with the “touch of a button”. The ScanShell 2000N’s (2000NR)capability and versatility provides the perfect imaging solution for today’s on-the-go professional.

Digital-imaging technology took a significant leap forward with the introduction of ScanShell 2000NR portable scanner. The newest member of ScanShell family and the industry’s first 600 dpi high resolution truly portable scanner that interfaces to any standard USB port. The 600 dpi resolution provides the high quality of output for photo scanning and the better OCR quality.

The ScanShell 2000N (2000NR) portable scanneris a lightweight (14oz/390g) mobile scanner that requires no external power adapter. Its USB 2.0 port connection feature allows for a fast and easy one-cable hook up to your notebook or desktop PC and the unique “launch” button starts your imaging application instantly.

menu plan monday

Monday, December 3rd, 2007

Here’s my menu this week…

I made a HUGE pot of yummy chili, it was dinner Saturday night and then we had leftovers Sunday. I’m going to use the rest for Matt’s taquitos and then freeze what’s left for next time we have hot dogs! Today I plan to make a big batch of broccoli/cauliflower salad to munch on. I made pumpkin bread and caramel corn last night for the church snack night. Jenna, I made one batch with chocolate chips like you mentioned~ Bailey loves it! I just had caramel corn for breakfast and feel like I won’t eat again for a week (I’m sure that’ll change :o)…

OH I forgot to tell you, I made up a recipe Friday night! I started with chicken breasts and sauteed them with seasonings, I took it out and made a sauce… served over rice. IT was yummy.

Tonight is $6 large pizza night at Mazzios… i’m there!

Tuesday night is half priced burgers at Sonic…

Wednesday: chicken spaghetti in crockpot

Thursday: sloppy joes

Friday: Church Ladies Dinner!

*All subject to change :o)!

Hope you have a yummy week!
