The New York Times' Personal Tech Columnist, David Pogue Profiled


Read the New York Times August 14th profile here.

"... the service could turn out to be the best [$79.50], plus shipping and optional services, you’ll ever spend."

"...the results are well worth it. [] ships your original photos back to you by Priority Mail (two or three days), complete with a nicely custom-labeled DVD."

"The scans look very good."

"ScanMyPhotos probably isn’t getting rich by charging only [$79.50] per 1,000 photos. Clearly, the real money is in the optional services, some of which are ingenious and nearly irresistible. For example, for [$184], the company will send you a pre-addressed shipping box that holds 1,600 photos (4 x 6); the price includes scanning and prepaid shipping both ways. If you buy two, you get a third box free, making the deal, when you consider postage, even better than the [$79.50] offer."

"... you can order a hardbound, custom-printed book containing every single scanned picture; the company even rotates the vertical shots upright for you. The layout is not fancy — the pictures are small and numbered — but in my family, this book was a huge hit."
