Delicious Library news

In case anyone is confused (or hungry) I’m talking about the personal library software for the Mac, Delicious Library. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer has a good article about Delicious Monster, the company behind Delicious Library.

I’ve played around with Delicious Library, I’m not that good with scanning barcodes with my iSight camera. For the article it sounds like iSight scanning is really difficult with the built in iSights on the newest Macs. I’m eventually going to register the software and get a wireless barcode scanner.

One problem I have with Delicious Library is that you are pretty much stuck with data from Amazon. Booxter, from Deep Prose Software, allows you to get data from many sources, including the Library of Congress. However, Delicious Library is a much more user friendly piece of software.
