Fingerprint scanner as a USB device

Hmm. You know how barcode scanners are sort of like a keyboard when connected via USB - if you scan a barcode it will just "type" that string of text into whatever you're doing just as if you'd used the keyboard? [more inside]

scanner with document feeder, b/w images encoded as GIF or PNG or equiv.

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.

best iphone scanner apps?

I have a lot of vintage paper. Photo albums, fashion magazines, random ephemera-- and a lot of it can't go in a flatbed scanner. I found an iPhone app called SmartScan that lets me photograph pages and corrects for tilt, but the resulting scans aren't as high-quality as my iPhone 5 is capable of. There are a ton of scanner apps out there, but I want the one that lets you capture the highest-res images. Any recommendations?

Who will scan my books for cheap?

Is cheap book-scanning available to consumers yet? I'd like to get a few hundred books scanned, to save space, destructive OK. AskMe hasn't addressed this for a couple of years, and I'm hoping folks know - and ideally have personally experience with - what the best options are these days.

The Cockroach of the Internet

My parents seem to have a fairly stubborn Trojan on their computer that periodically will forcibly install various Facebook-related apps. They don't even USE Facebook; but I check my own account when I visit them (about twice a year). I've just run Malware Bytes and run their Norton; Malware picked something up and killed it, but then it tried to install something again and I ran Norton, but that only found one cookie. Help?

X-ray photo of a cat?

Where can I get hold of a high-resolution (300dpi or better), print-quality digital copy of a radiograph (ie., x-ray photo) of a complete cat's body? I'm looking for something like this one at Getty Images, although preferably one taken from the side, like this or this. I have found several decent detail photos via Flickr and Google Images, but what I'm looking for needs to be a complete image. Getty and other stock photo providers are hideously expensive, and this is for a personal pet project of sorts (no pun intended), and not something I am able to spend hundreds of dollars on.

Too big for my scanner...

Where to get a large format picture scanned? I have eight 14" x 22" posters from all of the plays I was in during my high school years in the mid-80's. I would like to have them all scanned, front and back, into images I can post on the web. I took them to FedEx-Kinko's, and they wanted $8 per side to scan them. I am nostalgic, but not $128 worth of nostalgic. Is there a less expensive way I can turn these memories into digital artifacts?
