But if you want that image in digital form, for editing, e-mailing or just filing away on a disk, a scanner works better.

I can't tell you how many times people were truly impressed (and they couldn't all have been lying all of the time) by my ability to scan something so quickly and easily.

"A sci-fi inspired pen-size scanner that can capture an entire page of text and graphics in four seconds and can store as many as 100 pages in 2 megabytes of flash memory. Real-world business app: Like a pocket-size photographic memory, the pen scanner lets road warriors capture everything from business cards to, ahem, classified documents that can't be copied."
"This little device is the fastest and easiest way yet to take copious notes from the road. The pen scanner is so double agent. Though this one is closer to the size of a quill, or to one of those gag pens with some kitschy gewgaw at the end, it can still be easily stashed in a purse or briefcase. Portable scanners are no breaking news, I realize, but what made me look twice at the DocuPen is its ability to scan a full page of text and graphics in four to six seconds -- a Seabiscuit-like pace."
