Barcode my life!
August 20, 2006 5:38 AM   Subscribe

Some time ago I saw a program for the Mac that you could scan barcodes of various things and it would maintain your collection of them. I can't seem to find my bookmark for that and my googling is failing me. I would actually like to know if there was a windows version of it out yet, or a similar product for windows.

It would be nice if one program could handle multiple collections of things (books, comics, video games, etc) and handle the lending of them as well.

Delicious is like, three people. Four, maybe, on the right day. Shipley would rather focus on making an amazing Mac OS X app than worry about Windows.

Thanks. Now we need a parallel product for RFID, though I guess we are looking at a relatively brief interval before almost all RFIDS are encrypted.

is there anything for windows that is like media man but freeware? $40 is a lot for me to spend on such a total nerd luxury.

Have you considered Readerware? They will throw in the scanner for free which is pretty nice. You can get a 30 day trial and it outputs nicely as a CSV file that opens as spreadsheet easily if you want a non-proprietary type of report.

Readerware's free scanner is a Cuecat. Modified (i.e. hacked) USB cuecat scanners have been selling on Ebay for around $15.
