I am at a loss to understand why scanned images are saved - it serves no obvious purpose.
If you need 500 copies of one sheet it is a lot faster to take one picture of the page
"60% of Americans don't know copiers store images on a hard drive"Eh? I would think that figure approaches 100%. This was news to me. Surely hope our CPA knows about it. Thanks for posting it.
They've been around for years.
There are many good reasons to store print jobs in memory. We just got an uber printer about 6 months back and it has 250 gig HD in it. Just the other day, weeks after printing 100 brochures we needed a few more. I pulled up my print history, using the beautiful thumbnails I saw the brochure I wanted and clicked print
Be careful next time you duplicate anything on a public copier.
This whole thing really bothers me and I'm certainly no privacy nut.
