Although I have not yet written the software, months ago I got a couple 
cuecats and modded them (so they are unencrypted).  My plans were to use 
it to help me keep track of my video collection (many people use them 
for books too).  I also wanted to make a grocery program where I scanned 
in what I bought and used for groceries.  That way I could easily 
generate grocery lists even with prices and such.
