Tech Tip: scanR.com

Small Image of Photo to ScanI’m attaching a test from a “cellphone camera to Scanr.com FREE conversion service.” The services receives an email attachment (ie. document, whiteboard image, etc) from your cellphone and converts it to a scanned image or PDF document. It might be nice for spies wanted to use their cellphone to bring home classified documents — or just for the average law abiding citizen wanting to save a copy of something as a PDF, TXT or JPG. Click the small image for my sample test of a 8-1/2×11 Lakota Local schools schedule for 2007-2008 taken with Palm Treo 700p or download the PDF version here — 747KB. (I used the ‘reading glasses’ trick and held them in front of the camera lens to achieve a sharper ‘macro’ photo — a smart company would build that feature into their camera. Hint, Hint Palm!)
