But do their eyes glow redux: Google Granted Infrared Book Scanning Patent

In case you thought that it was crazy to think that Google was on the culture grab of all time, this news may cause you to think again. It’s taking too long to scan in the world’s books because of that nasty book binding problem that requires a little more human contact that a parasite really can safely withstand. Presto: Infrared scanning to the rescue–owned by Google of course.

(Patentgenius has the complete patent for further study of book parasites.)
