WiFi Memory Cards Coming Soon


In the next few months, Eye-Fi plans to release Secure Digital memory cards with integrated Wi-Fi chips. The card will allow digital cameras to automatically send photos to home computers or to photo-sharing websites. The company says their products and services "intend to make the 'ease of use' promise of digital photography a reality."

According to Eye-Fi, four out of five digital photos are never printed or shared, because of the complex, multi-step practice required to get photos from your digital camera–a time consuming process that deters even the most motivated consumers.

Eye-Fi plans to provide the first and only effortless way to send images directly from your camera to a host of destinations, including a computer, and online photo and social networking sites for instant sharing. In the mean time, you can use sites like Radar, which allows you to send photos you've taken on your cell phone and send them to a free hosting website, or send pictures from your cell phone to your Myspace page. What do you think - will you use this Eye-Fi service?
