Bamboo bread slicerThe Best Thing Since….Sliced Bread

I’ve been getting into the habit of baking bread at home, and I ran into a snag when I tried to cut my just-out-of-the oven masterpiece. It’s just darn hard because a home-baked loaf can be tough on the outside, and of course, nice and chewy on the inside. I thought I needed a knife with five blades, but God provides, and I found this great bamboo bread slicer solved my problems. It also comes with the world’s sharpest serrated bread knife, and it all folds down to a very slim shape. A great addition to anyone who bakes their own bread.

Fujitsu F1 8000 scannerFujitsu’s fi-8000 Scanner

This new series of scanners from Fujitsu include innovative and industry-first features including:

Clear Image Capture: Breakthrough optical technology that resets the benchmark for high-quality image capture to produce images ideal for data extraction, search and OCR processing, ensuing accurate, editable PDFs.

Manual Feed Mode: Allows feeding and scanning of forms, glued papers, and A3 size, bi-folded documents. Supports scans of passports and booklets up to 7 mm without the hassle of “sandwiching” them between carrier sheets.

Automation Separation Control: Industry-first feature optimizes paper separation torque according to the number of sheets loaded. The large capacity tray allows for high volume scanning of up to 100 sheets at a time and 70 sheets per minute, which saves time by preventing misfeeds and interruptions mid-scan.

Improved Document Protection: Industry-first Image Monitoring technology monitors image tilt in real-time so that scans come to a halt once image angles exceed the “safe” range to keep documents free of damage. Intelligent Sonic Paper Protection (ISOP) “listens” for abnormal sounds (such as paper wrinkle) and immediately stops the scanner if detected, protecting documents from damage.
