My grandpa has some great stories of German soldiers in his house, and playing in abandoned tanks after the war. Even my dad and his buddies used to find old grenades in nearby forests and stuff when he as a kid.

I purchased one a couple of weeks ago and have been slowly scanning a tote-full of old photo albums. It's tedious, but combined with Picasa to organize them all, it's a labour of love and well worth it!

I don't think you can replace opening up a physical album and going over age-old photographs, but having a virtual copy of them is imperative!
