This falls in the category of a very cool new trick. Sometimes something comes along that truly makes one’s life easier. I know there are always new technologies coming down the pike but how many times do you get something and you can barely understand or ever use a tenth of it? So now I am here to share with you what might be one of your most used devices of the year. Introducing Eye-Fi. This is a little orange 4 gig memory card that goes into your camera to replace your old one and then it is magic. You go stand within ten feet of your computer and depending on which level you get it will 1) upload all of the photos on it to your computer, or 2) your computer and a website (like Flickr) or 3) your photos and movies to your computer and a website. Now how is that for a dream answered?
I have been telling our City Councilman, Kwanza Hall that he needs to stop taking pictures with his Blackberry because they are all blurry. Kwanza is active on Facebook and Twitter and is all over Atlanta. He posts lots of fuzzy photos that cause you to squint and wonder if you are going blind. I asked him about it and he said that he can’t use his little camera because the memory card is always full. He explained that being on the run he forgets to go through the tedious process to unload his photos. Now I have just solved his problem. All of Atlanta will be thanking me for getting him squared away with this little piece of new technology. Chalk this one up to a New Trick that is going to make us all really happy.
