Eye- Fi

Wireless memory cards are here- at least for your pocket cam

On shelves everywhere from Walmart to the ever-awesome B&H in NYC, these are $100 a pop, for "no cables, no waiting, no hassles."

Not only does it wirelessly upload the photos to your computer, but from any wireless network, you can upload straight to Facebook, Flickr, Shutterfly, Photobucket, Picasa, Webshots- even straight to Walmart's website for immediate printing!

"The Eye-Fi Card automatically delivers your pictures to your favorite photo sharing, printing, blogging or social networking website. It saves you the usual hassle or time required to upload pictures yourself." -www.eye.fi/share

Definitely gotta get one for the pocket camera, but as far as the pro world, it needs more testing. With specifically large files [i.e. RAW images]- it can take a loooong while to download. Too long. Great start though. Just yet another reason to invest in digital.
