Well my Canon scanner has kicked the scanning habit and is going to the big computer store in the sky. Finding new hardware is never fun because there's always a sea of bad equipment waiting to be bought by a sucker. I'll make sure to read through reviews of course, but I sure do miss my old scanner--I loved it--it was light as can be and about 1 inch thick. It must not have been a good traveler because it conked out soon after returning from my trip. I'll make sure to search for the label 'jetsetter' in the newer scanners.
