The Doxie One could have solved a problem I encountered a few weeks ago when I hauled out the 15-pound hp scanner I bought in 2003 to transfer some hard documents to my laptop. Everyone in the room started laughing at me and was like, Who uses a scanner anymore?! What're you gonna scan the photos from that 35mm roll of film you just got developed? Haha! Loser! And I was like, Shut up, Mama! How else am I supposed to turn my handwritten last will and testament and poster of Kelly Kapowski into digital files?
If my mama had been helpful instead of chastising, she would have told me about the Doxie One, a portable scanner that requires no computer connection to scan just about anything with flexure. Photos, bills, receipts, reports, drawings, recipes, business cards, whatever you want to turn from solid to data state of matter. In addition, the battery-operated Doxie One weighs less than a pound and measures only 10.5" long x 1.7" tall x 2.2" deep so you can take it with you pretty much anywhere you'd need to scan on the go.
Once documents have been fed through the Doxie belt, a process that takes about 8 seconds for full color sheets at 300 dpi, its included 2 GB SD memory card stores them until you're ready to transfer to a Mac or PC. The scanner card uploads to either of these systems, and from there users can organize scans, create searchable PDFs, and send to the cloud (e.g., Evernote, Dropbox) with a click.
A Doxie app capable of creating JPEG, PNG, or searchable PDFs with OCR is also included in the Doxie One scanner package. Grab one from the Dude Exclusives online store for 33% off while supplies last!
The Doxie One portable scanner is a top Dude Gift for the Office pick.
