Thanks Lynn! you've pretty certainly discovered the answer to the mystery of the Humanware "teaser" ads many of us have been receiving via email lately. these ads, for those who haven't seen them, have you guessing as to what the next humanware product to be released is going to do; they hint only that it's very small. the article Lynn uncovered is Intel announcing a new product, sold through humanware, which is a hand-held OCR much like the KNFB reader, but deliberately limited in technical capabilities so that no third party can enhance it to do anything else. it's planned to sell for $1500, because Intel is classing it as a medical device, which means insurance companies will pay for it, since it compensates for a specific loss of function, and is not a general purpose computer.
