What is a CueCat??

It is a Small Hand Held Bar Code Scanner, it was brought into the world by a now defunct company called "Digital Convergence", their plan was to get these scanners into the world to help tie you and advertisers together... Simple, the vendor puts their bar coded link into the ad they are running in a publication, you scan the bar code and you're off to the site for the item you are interested in.....
There goes the rub. Little known to the users was that each time you used the CueCat a coded serial number was also sent which could have been used to judge your buying habits and demographic surveys.... Shades of 1984...
So now that Digital Convergence is dead who cares.... Read on

Long live the hackers, these people found that with a few minor modifications the CueCat could be made to work as a standard bar code reader. Free software was written for the Windows, Linux, Unix, MAC and other OS's which helps to tame the CueCat and undo the stealthy reason behind Digital Convergences business plan.
  • One site Cuecatastrophe.com has a windows driver written which strips and decodes the information all through software without having to modify the Cats.

    Uses...
    • Simple, its a cheap but functional Barcode Scanner
        Applications or users
      • Teachers
      • Sports Leagues
      • Non-Profit Groups
      • Inventory Control
      • Cataloging CD's Tapes etc...
      • Any Hobby Item you want to track
      • eBay items you sell, barcode them...
      • As much or as little as you want to barcode....
      • Small Business's for POS, where else can you do this on a shoe string budget???

      There are hundreds of sites on the internet dealing with the CueCat, how to use, how to modify (De-Claw) with free software packages for most OS's out there today....
