CES 2009: Keep your digital photo frame fresh with Windows Live FrameIt

Sign in to queue

Description

Last Christmas Santa Claus brought me a digital photo frame. It was one of the models that displays photos from an SD card that you slot into the base of the frame. I had a spare SD card lying around so I put it into my PC and transferred some photos over from a recent holiday and then put the frame on a bookshelf.
12 months later and the frame still has the same photos repeating on an endless loop... sure I could pull out the SD card and put some new photos on there but it would be MUCH easier if I could just log into a web service and tell the frame to pull photos from my Flickr account, Windows Live Photo Gallery and Live Mesh,.. maybe even display the latest weather or news headlines? Imagine that,....
...Enter Windows Live FrameIt

    @lijiansnd you're correct - the ability to pull photos from Flickr or get weather information are not necessarily new features for a digital photo frame but what makes FrameIt unique is that it's a web based service that integrates with lots of different photos storage sites like Flickr, SmugMug, Live Spaces, Live Mesh etc. not to mention information sources for news, weather etc. The service is constantly being updated meaning that the features of your digital photo frame (should) get better over time! Smiley
    Also the frame in the video above has built in internet connectivity so you don't have to keep it plugged into your computers USB port, and your computer turned on, like the Guitar Boy 2.4" frame needs. The price difference is significant though...
