Scannable

The link below is to an article that takes a look at Evernote’s latest app – Scannable. This app is great for scanning articles and documents into Evernote and thereby archiving them for future reference. I’m sure the usefulness of such an app is apparent to all, especially Evernote users and those needing to grab some document of interest to family history.

I have finally managed to get hold of a digital image copier, which I don’t think accurately captures what the device does. It doesn’t copy digital images, but copies slides and film (or scans them) to make digital images/photos.

I have quite a number of old slides that belonged to my grandfather, that I am now hoping to scan before they are forever ruined. Many have been damaged my moisture over the years – so I am not completely sure just how many I can save. I’m hoping to save at least some of them.

I now have a lot more storage room for my digital files (including photos, videos, etc) – in fact I have a whole terabyte of space. This means I can store something like 200 000 photos, or 250 000 MP3s, or 120 hours of HD video.
