Weren’t we supposed to live in a paperless world by now? I seem to have at least as much stuff printed on dead trees in my life as ever—business documents, photos, greeting cards, and a whole lot more. So do you, I’ll bet. And if you’d like to cut clutter by bringing them into the digital world, here’s a way to get a shot at a scanner that can do the job.
Courtesy of Fujitsu, we’re giving away two of its snazzy ScanSnap scanners in a random drawing: the super-portable S1100 (a $199 value, shown on the left above) and the double-sided S1300 ($295, on the right). Both are compact desktop models that can scan to PDF, Office, e-mail, and more, and are compatible with Windows PCs and Macs.
There are two simple ways to get your chance at winning:
- Leave a comment on this post talking about the paper items in your life you most want to turn into digital form. (Please use a real e-mail address so we can contact you if you win; we won’t display it, share or sell it, or use it for any other purpose.)
- Tweet me (I’m @harrymccracken), again sharing your thoughts on the paper items you want to turn into digital files. (Make sure you’re following me so I can Direct Message you if you win. And if you have enough characters left over, you can optionally use this hashtag: #ScanSnap.)
You only need to enter once; multiple entries won’t increase your chance of winning. Please enter between now and 12pm PT on Friday, May 27th. We’ll choose two winners at random from everyone who participates by this deadline and notify them by Monday, May 30th.
