New Gadgets

So, most people would consider it a bad time to be buying new gadgets since I am only weeks away from moving to Los Angeles. Well, I think any time is a good time to buy gadgets and this week I got three.
First Gadget: Canon CanoScan Lide 100
This was a gadget of necessity. My bank does not have a local branch so I have to deposit my check by scanning them. Earlier last week my scanner of 9 1/2 years (a mustek 1200 UB plus) died. I have used that scanner for many many projects over the years but right now scanning checks is all I do with it so I grabbed the cheapest new scanner on Amazon.

BIG thanks to the developers of SANE. Having SANE prolonged the life of the scanner for 4 years. When I got my mac laptop in 2005 mustek has not updated their drivers but SANE had. Thanks guys!!!
Second Gadget: Acer x223w
When I get a new gadget I immediately post it on Amazon for the price of the next best one. Last year, when I got my 19″ Acer I did that and this week it sold allowing me to purchase a new 22″ for roughly the same price!!!!
Third Gadget: iPhone
I have been with Alltel forever and my contract is up. The iPhone is awesome. I really am not too fond of going to AT&T but its worth it. I also looked at the Palm Pre and Blackberry Storm but in the end the iPhone plays nicer with my 12″ Powerbook and it has the AppStore.
