Re: filmscanners: Fast, decent (if you are lucky), low res scans

I have to agree with Ed's comments.

Wouldn't it be nice if products came with a diagnostic chip and buffer, 
that would record all basic information of conditions at a specific time 
(well, maybe not "all", such as composition of air in the room, or how 
many beers the operator had consumed ;-)), but "most" of the important 

OK, here's a million dollar idea, and I only want 10% royalties...

Come up with a cheap sensor chip that would record all basic parameters 
at a time prescribed by the user, (recorded as a file on the hard drive) 
which could either be uploaded to the service department or sent with 
the device.

If I'm not mistaken some of HP's high end products now can report to 
them via email of a group of problems that might need servicing.  Their 
upper end ($20K) printers can be set up to order supplies (inks, toners, 
etc) as they run low via the internet.
