The CueCat barcode scanner is a free barcode scanner given away years ago that failed to catch on. Part of the problem was that the hardware was crippled and wasn't really an open, generic scanner.
With QTools, you can unlock a CueCat converting it into the open, generic barcode scanner it should have been all along. If you have a CueCat (or are thinking about playing with one), you'll want to download QTools and start playing with your CueCat.
Awhile back we wrote a CueCat Postmortem. So much of what we said years ago is still true today, even as our cell phones do double duty as barcode scanners.
Did you know that eBay is full of jailbroken CueCats? Well it is.
