From the world of do it yourself interfaces…
- Boing Boing reports that two million CueCats are up for sale on a liquidator's site at $0.30 each in quantities of 500K or more. The CueCat is a barcode reader.
- If you have a barcode scanner, Delicious Library can fill your “digital shelves” with tons of in-depth information allowing you to catalog, browse, and share all your books, movies, music, and video games.
Now the caveats:
- Cue Cat is a PS/2-based barcode reader. You’ll need a PS/2 to USB converter. Unless you choose to purchase the $11.95 USB CueCat.
- You can get a USB barcode reader for about $70 dollars and skip steps one through three.
