The software is mediocre. Some of the bundled OS X software is so old it's non-native on Intel machines, fortunately you can omit that. Unlike the higher end machines you don't get Adobe's superb PDF/OCR combination (yes, once Adobe was competent), you get a much less efficient product called ABBY FineReader. Even so, it does produce PDF images with searchable OCRd text indices.See Here: desktop document scanner

Very handy if you want to enlarge the picture to put on the side of a building or perhaps cover the state of Rhode Island... I wonder how many Mb each picture is if taken in TIF.

 I have a lens identical to that... all I have to do now is find one of those scanners... 

If only...

Cool idea though, and those are some great results he's gotten from it.
