If you want to set up your own mirror Ive packed up most of the best stuff
and pages all ready to be dropped in and listed.

"Hackers like Wilkinson have suggested using the CueCat as a shopping
wand: Every time you run out of milk or peanut butter, swipe the carton
and a replacement will be ordered automatically at an online retailer like or Webvan. Wilkinson said he has approached retailers with
the idea and is awaiting their responses. The Uscan project, which
Wilkinson heads up, has already made it possible to scan a book and
automatically shop for the best price among 40 online booksellers.
The CueCat could also be used to catalog books, CDs and movies, Wilkinson
said, or for taking a quick inventory of your personal possessions. You
could set up a personal lending library, too. Swipe a CD or a movie before
it leaves the house and you will always remember who borrowed what. "
