>>Check out The Student Tablet PC blog. Tracy Hooten, one of the two students who runs the blog, recently posted a
comparison on how to do this with both Acrobat and Microsoft Office Document Imaging (included with Office like
a lot of cool utilities most people never seem to discover).
Actually thats where I found out about book scanning. I heard about the Student Tablet PC blog from your podcast! I went with Microsoft Office Document Imaging because I don't like using pdf files (they always seem so slow and have bad ink support). Like
I wrote before, basic details can be found at my
blog but check out the Student Tablet PC Blog for detailed explainations.
Just for a quick reference, my first book was 300 pages and took about 2 hours and was 16megs when finished.
XiXoria: It fell out of my bag so there was nothing protecting it. It landed in the upper left corner so I was worried about the LCD being shattered but it was fine. Like I said, it only had a small scratch on the paint on the corner. I'd say it was about
a 4 foot drop on to cement. Maybe I'm just lucky but I'd say thats pretty durable.
