    California-based Eye-Fi Inc today unveiled the Eye-Fi Card — the world’s first wireless SD memory card for digital cameras. The Eye-Fi Card not only stores digital photos or videos, but it also uses home Wi-Fi networks to transfer its content to PCs, Macs and online photo and social networking sites. The Eye-Fi Card works with existing and new SD-compatible digital cameras and stores photos like a conventional SD memory card. Priced at $99.99 with 2GB of storage, the Eye-Fi Card is available now from major online retailers including Amazon.com, Buy.com and Walmart.com. For more information, please visit this page.

    You've got a dodgy link there, malware.

    On the subject though, wow that's impressive. I want one. I wonder what the range on it is like.
     
    malware says thanks.

    Why do it? Because we can.

    On one hand, a lot of cameras today come with built-in wifi, making this sort of thing kinda superfluous.

    On the... well, on the same hand, I guess -- I don't know if 5 times the regular price of a 2GB card justifies this feature.

    I wouldnt waste my money. also.....that mem card is the prime reason why people are fat/overweight/obese. because have 1 of these cards makes people lazy. why run down stairs just to get the cam/mp3 player when you can just Wi-Fi all the contents from the comfort of the laptop in the bathroom?

    christ sooner or later some smart ass will create something which eats, chews & digests our food for us before we can even start to think of what it looked like before it left the frying pan.

    some people just dont know when to take time off or start drinking decaff

    Wouldn't it be easier if the Camera was Blue tooth compatable or just plug it into your
    "i-phone" and mail the pictures home or to freinds.
