Digital Photo frame receives RSS and e-mail photos

Chris Davies - Nov 27, 2006

Okay, before I start I’d like to apologise if these are your children.  I mean no true offence, and I’m sure they’ll grow up into perfectly respectable adults.  But seriously, would you really advertise your digital photo frame with some Village of the Damned-esque make-up encrusted scary kids?  I certainly wouldn’t, and I’m having trouble reading any of the specs for this eStarling frame because their demonic eyes are following round the room. 

Still, it’d be a shame if I didn’t manage to take it all in, because the eStarling is one of the few frames I could actually recommend.  Not only does it have the standard bevy of memory card slots (MMC, SD, MS and CF) to locally load photos onto the 7-inch display, it also comes with WiFi in both b and g flavours and 128mb of on-board memory.  Make sure you read on after the cut to find out just what having that WiFi lets you do…

Using the free eStarling Connect service you can set up RSS feeds from photo sharing sites like Flickr and Picassa to get automatically displayed, as well as a POP email support so you can remotely send images to the frame.  Direct frame to frame image sending is also supported, so if you have a particularly nice shot of your hellish spawn-of-satan offspring you can share the fear with their grandparents without them needing to dribble all over their computer in confusion. 

The eStarling frame costs $249 from ThinkGeek.
