I'm trying to go paperless, and have scanned and OCR'd huge stacks of paperwork into PDF documents. Can you recommend a tool to split, merge, delete pages etc from PDFs? [more inside]

I'm looking to digitise all of my documents or as many as possible, but am slightly weary about shredding everything what sorts of documents should i keep original paper copies of and which should I digitise?
I ask because I don't want to end up in a sticky legal situation where I would require the original paper copy. [more inside]

Is there Mac-based software available that will search my entire hard drive or designated folders for image-only PDF files (have not been OCR'ed) and then automatically run OCR (using Acrobat Pro or whatever) and override the original file with a searchable version? [more inside]

My wife just won a Canon PIXMA MP610 printer/scanner. (We have not received it yet.) Can this machine do the paper-digitizing magic of a Fujitsu ScanSnap s510 scanner? Perhaps with additional software? If not, exactly what is it we'd be missing?

I do my best to not print out PDF documents and I realized that I could reduce my printing to almost zero if I had a PDF reader that would let me hilite and save hilites and add my own notes. Acrobat Reader doesn't seem to do this.
What readers can do this? I prefer linux or MacOSX but I do have a laptop that can boot Windows.
