Wi- Fi frame from eStarling - Thumbs Up have announced the release of the eStarling 2.0 Wi-Fi.
The eStarling Wi-Fi isn’t just a top quality way of displaying your digital pictures, it’s a great way to keep in touch with your family and friends by letting them share their photographs too.
With full web-based access you can connect the Photo Frame to your local Wi-Fi network and display pictures via email, or from an online photo archive source such as Flickr or Photobucket.
We’ll get on to the great specifications and features in a second, but here’s a simple reason why this would make an excellent gift. Let’s say you live a long way from your family – parents, grandparents etc. and you want to send them pictures of your kids. You could do it the old fashioned way and send prints in the post – or buy them one of these so you can let them see your pictures wherever you are in the world.
Or, if you want one for yourself, in addition to showing your artistic efforts and plain old holiday snaps, you can choose keywords from Flickr and, for example, tell your photo frame to display hot babes, Venetian architecture, sunsets or whatever else takes your fancy.
Once the photo frame is online, it gets its own dedicated email address that anyone you share it with can send photos to. You can secure this by only allowing pictures from specific email addresses to be displayed. So don’t worry – your Wi-Fi picture frame isn’t going to try to sell you Viagra.
Simply email any photo to the frame. It checks for new email every few minutes and puts any pictures it receives into rotation in a slideshow. It functions in the same way when receiving photos via a Flickr or Photobucket feed. You can also add or delete photos directly via the web-based control panel.
