OT: ‘Meatspace Cataloging’

I spent a good two months ripping and cataloging my gigantic CD collection onto a half-terabyte of hard drive space a year ago, often wondering if and when a good way of organizing/categorizing my physical collections of books, games and movies would be possible- without requiring weeks of typing. Well, it doesn’t address digital conversion/storage (and appears to be available for Mac OSX only), but now Intelli’s Cordless Collector is out- a Bluetooth-enabled barcode scanner that lets you scan the barcode data on your videos, DVDs, games and music, transferring them in batches of 250 at a time (it’s onboard memory restriction) to their ‘Collection’ desktop software for further organization/cover art retrieval/online lookups. Interesting- given the amount of HD space I’ve already allotted to my stupidly-monstrous CD collection, I suppose this may be a reasonable next step…
