by Shivaranjan on October 21, 2007

ADVERTISEMENTS

eye-fi Eye-Fi would soon be introducing 2 GB SD memory card which has Wi-Fi 802.11b/g capabilities. If you happen to use this card then you can forget using data cables and memory card readers as this card would directly upload photos to your PC from your digital camera via Wi-Fi interface.

How does this SD flash memory card with Wi-Fi capability work?

  • Install this card in your PC or Mac with the SD USB adaptor that ships with it.
  • Register your Eye-Fi card with PC or Mac using the Eye-Fi manager.
  • Now remove the card from the PC and insert this in your camera and start shooting photographs.
  • Now keep your camera powered ON so that the pictures can be uploaded to your computer via Wi-Fi interface.

It is great to know that most of the devices and gadgets that we use daily are slowly migrating to wireless technologies. It is always a wise decision to buy gadgets with wireless capabilities as they are always pretty useful. You should probably not use this card much when your camera is not near a power source the wireless capability of the card uses the battery power of your camera therefore you may see a dip in your camera’s battery performance. I am still not sure what kind of Wi-Fi security standard they are using to transfer the images from camera to computer. The bang for the buck that this card would offer is not yet known at present.

Update Nov 04, 2007:

Xbit Labs reports that this card has been launched.

Your feet swell during running, as much as a full shoe size.
At this time, their body temperature drops and their
heart rate can decrease from 200 beats per minute (bpm) to 10 bpm.

Kidney failure is a concern among patients with this condition, and an early diagnosis
is important to prolong the use of the kidneys.
