A Huge Gear Diary Thank You to Card Munch


So CES is well underway, and we are running from sun-up until late at night. Along the way we are seeing all kinds of great tech, speaking to awesome people and… collecting tons of business cards.

Well, actually, that’s not quite true.

If this were last year we would be collecting tons of business cards but this isn’t last year and we aren’t collecting any business cards at all. Thanks to the Card Munch iPhone app and the generosity of the folks at Card Munch, Judie and I haven’t collected a single business card. Instead we take the cards, grab a picture of them using the app and then return the card to the owner. A short time later a new contact is created on our iPhone, and the information is precise.

Why is it so accurate? Simple, Card Munch has real people doing the transcription work. It costs a little more than a fully automated solution, but it works perfectly.

As my wife Elana always reminds me… Quality costs… and Card Munch is a quality service that is proving itself here at CES 2011!

You can read our full review of the app/service HERE on the site.
