  • Best training on paperless workflow!!

    By BryanB
    I didn't even know I wanted to really go paperless till after reading this book. Amazing amount of training and advise wrapped into this iBook. I am now the proud owner of a ScanSnap 1500 ( though why they say its a wifi scanner but only allow it to work with mobile through wifi is beyond me) the scanner really is amazing though. I'd tried using my all in one to go paperless but the combination of scanning tech and software included in the ScanSnap really make it superior. Everything I can gets read correctly and Hazel can find the key words in the PDF and file it for me. I don't have to double check. I don't have to spend time figuring out the correct settings cause this field guide shows you exactly how to get it set up correctly! I would recommend this to anyone who wants or is interested in going paperless. This is the way to go/-)
  • Aanrader!

  • Prettig te lezen en veel duidelijke video's

    By Arnout Drenthel
    Ik luisterde al vaker naar de Mac Power Users podcast van David Sparks en bezoek zijn MacSparky blog regelmatig. David heeft een hele kalme en duidelijke manier van dingen uitleggen. Deze eerste Field Notes is ook geschreven met zijn typische prettige humor en leest lekker weg. Ik heb het in een avond doorgelezen (en gekeken!) en het is voor mij nu een stuk duidelijker hoe ik bepaalde dingen in kan stellen. En dat terwijl ik al 3 jaar een ScanSnap scanner heb staan... Voor deze prijs, prima boekje. Met veel surfen op internet kun je vast dezelfde info vinden, maar niet zo prettig samengesteld, duidelijk en met eenduidig advies. Aanrader dus.
