I don't think I've seen it in here yet but there is a new Fujitsu ScanSnap and it seems to be getting rock-solid reviews. It is only about $40 more than the S1500 on Amazon. There are dozens of recommendations of the S1500 throughout Facebook.
With the Denver REALTORS dustup regarding syndication, I'm still baffled as to why we as an industry are not tracking our distribution and reach via our own hugely popular syndication system: IDX. I wrote a post about this in November:
Came across this on REALTOR.com and I can tell you I am a little uncomfortable with it. Several of the replies were encouraging of cancellation, which could be an ethics issue. This is another reason why I am uncomfortable with the relationship NAR has with Move Inc.
My indexable IDX sites closed 87 sales last year and 72 the year before. They can work with the right efforts, but not everyone can make it work. $39/mo. is still fairly reasonable if it gets you even one sale per year.
Rama - you want to be careful with any outbound links, what you really need to do is find websites with a higher domain authority than yours and ask them to link to you. I'm not talking about a link farm (that's a bad thing), but offer to write up some unique content to a targeted local portal site about a neighborhood that you are an expert in and ask them to link to your website or targeted listings page that you have created with your IDX tool. Use that free tool i mentioned above to track your success. There is no such thing as a plug in, play and leave it SEO tool. These days you need an IDX tool along with some creative strategies to gain good quality inbound links.
The iPad isn't a replacement for a laptop / desktop. It's an awesome slice of technology, and an amazing content consumption and sharing device. It's a little lacking in content creation capability. Sure, you can probably do anything on an iPad that you can do on a full blown lap/desk top system, but it may be far less efficient.
