One major advantage of increased LCD
manufacturing capacity is the availability of attractively priced
electronic picture frames. These babies can cycle through a slide show
of your favorite vacation or family photos, which they obtain
wirelessly via your home network, or through an onboard memory card
Such frames aren't new, but have
often been paired with a clunky, closed subscription service, or just
look too plasticy. What's much more intriguing is a frame on the wall
that's simply an output option of your favorite photo management
application. Send some pictures to your online photo album, some to
your preferred print processor, a few to your home printer, and a bunch
to the LCD frame on the wall in the living room.
Before you whip out your credit card, the frame on the right in this photo, from Art Evolution, carries a suggested retail price of $2,000.
