A device to help mom digitize old memories

Looking a little like a small paper shredder, this device lets you feed in photographs that are then be converted into a format you can edit on a PC.

For the woman who gave you life, you can help her keep all her old memories this Mother's Day with this digital picture converter. Looking a little like a small paper shredder, this device lets you feed in photographs which will then be converted into a format you can edit on a PC.

We know what you're thinking--a scanner can do exactly the same thing for much cheaper. But honestly, we don't think anyone will relish trying to teach their mom how to use a flatbed scanner and Photoshop Elements for resizing, cropping, and touch-ups. This solution is much simpler, even though it costs more at about $150.

There's one caveat. We suggest you go hide or destroy those old Polaroids of yourself as a baby. Otherwise mom might make your most embarrassing moments suddenly available for all to see online.
