The Digitisation Bandwagon

The Future is Yesterday has just done some interesting testing with Snapter, a piece of software that claims to convert any picture into a pdf document. Handy - and some interesting things going on inside there, if it works - and no doubt adding to the general amateur digitisation boom. But! technology doesnt seem to be working out just so for them yet.
The program is suppose to detect the edges of the page. Using this information, it can than warp the image to deal with things like page curl, or crooked photos. On most pages, it wasn’t even close, comically so.
