Flic Media Organizer
Functioning as a Windows equivalent to Delicious Library for the Mac, Flic Scanner is now offering its Media Organizer as a simpler way to catalog and track extensive collections of books, movies, and music. By reading barcodes with the bundled USB laser scanner, Flic's software automatically obtains complete data for most items; CDs and DVDs in particular receive extensive information that the company says can be useful for difficult searches, such as individual track listings for CDs and the main cast for most movies. Owners can track borrowed copies and can export their libraries in HTML, XML, or raw text values for other programs to use. Flic says the scanner and organizing software ship together for $200.
