Photographs and memoriesChristmas cards you sent to meAll that I have are theseTo remember you- Jim Croce, Photographs and MemoriesWelcome to 2007 fellow bloggers. For many of us, holidays are a time of family get togethers, of remembrances of things past. Another year passes and we remember old friends and loved ones. Thanks to a tip from fellow Wi-Fi Blogger, Glen Fleishman, I have just learned that Kodak, has released a Wi-Fi enabled picture frame, where you can stream pictures via that trusty 802.11 protocol from your computer to any where you want in the house or office. only does this mean that you entire digital library is now fair game, I hope over time, your can connect some kind of RFID or identity system. Think of it: when my brother visits, all the frames in the house can automatically change to pictures of his (we agree) adorable kids.It is over 125 years ago since, George Eastman set up his first factory, having perfected the dry plate process for photography. It was a revolution in being able to communicate on a mass market basis through pictures. He would have loved the Wi-Fi-enabled frame. Eastman was a lifelong bachelor, a tinkerer and a restless soul. He did give us one of more memorable quotes about work and life: “What we do during our working hours determines what we have; what we do in our leisure hours determines what we are.”
