"What do you read, my lord?" "Words, words, words."

Delicious Library [MAC software]
Point any FireWire digital video camera, like an Apple iSight®, at the barcode on the back of any book, movie, music, or video game.

The barcode is scanned and within seconds the item's cover appears on your digital shelves filled with in-depth information downloaded from one of six different web sources from around the world.

Once your whole library is catalogued, you can browse, sort, and search through your digital shelves. Sync your catalogued library onto your iPod or print a color catalogue and take it with you.

Find and purchase new items using Delicious Library's personalized recommendations. Keep track of the items your friends are borrowing using Delicious Library's loan management system, which integrates with Apple's Address Book and iCal.

Take advantage of new, cutting-edge Mac OS X Tiger features with Delicious Library. Search though all of your library data using the Spotlight menu and enjoy anytime access to your entire collection with the Delicious Library Dashboard widget.

If you have tons of items, or don't want to have to take your items to your computer to scan them in, check out our wireless scanner.
