This is the kind of technology I love--it's already out there (no download), everybody has it--and it's pretty much free!
You snap a print article with your cellphone camera, then send it to ScanR.com, which converts it to a .pdf file with high quality OCR software. Download to your computer and you can convert it to text. Or have ScanR convert it first.
ScanR is free for 5 uses per month, $3 US for unlimited use. Here's the address of the Newsweek article: http://www.newsweek.com/id/57431
A similar product is found at Qipit.com. Very cool.
