I was sitting on an airplane last week next to someone who was using a handheld portable scanner no larger than your traditional yellow highlighter. She was effortlessly scrolling through text in an article from Inc. magazine to be stored and shared later with her staff. I came home and looked up the website of C-Pen (http://www.cpen.com) and was amazed to learn that you can store up to 3000 pages of text in the C-Pen, which can then be transferred to any computer documents using infra-red technology. Check out their site, or go into your local Office Depot and try it out -- just $200!
