I need to scan a bunch of documents that are mostly simple black/white or grayscale text, lines, etc. I'm probably going to just buy a sheet-fed scanner, and I'd like recommendations for that. I'm hoping for a solution that will automatically generate PDFs with the included scanned images encoded as GIFs or PNGs or similar, since they will mostly be black/white or grayscale, which compresses much more cleanly with these formats.

I have been asked to provide a quote for digitizing a bunch of documents. What is the going rate for this type of work? More details inside. [more inside]

what is the best way to save written notes electronically for mobile use?
i am a physician and i have about 500 pages of written notes from printed powerpoint lectures that i have bound into two volumes. I have attended subsequent lectures and now i don't know what is the best way to encorporate this new info as well as new info going forward. i carry a treo 650 and have access to hospital computers but i do not have an "assigned" computer so i am thinking of a portable mode. making PDF's seems to make sense but then how do i keep them accessible for those quick questions that come up during hospital rounds? How about putting them on those "keychain" portable disks?
Interested in suggestions....
