The CueCat is a cheap (actually given away in several places) barcode reader. The bundled software (for Mac and Windows) makes it possible to read a barcode printed in a catalog or a magazine and be forwarded to a relevant URL (at the same time giving them your serial number). This category covers both this and the efforts to write new software for the CueCat that performs other tasks as well as the controversies regarding this.
  • CueCat PAM Module for Linux The pam_cuecat module reads decoded bar codes from /dev/scanners/cuecat, looks up the username:barcode_type:barcode line in /etc/cuecatpasswd, and returns whether or not this user has been authenticated.
  • Killing Your CueCat -- Your Guide to Catricide A humorous protest of Digital Convergence's CueCat product featuring satirical parodies of ads and their license agreement plus alternate uses/gratuitous destruction of the controversial barcode scanner.
