You Might Like This

Over the Christmas holidays I had occasion to stop and visit an old friend who was back in town visiting his Mom. He is now from Phoenix and his sister lives in Des Moines. While sitting in his Moms house and visiting I saw one of those digital picture frames and noticed two wires coming from it and running along the wall.
I was interested because I've been thinking of buying one of those. I asked what the two wires were. I figured one was a power cord and was correct. The second was connected to a telephone jack. Al's Mom explained that she gets new pictures sent to the frame by her daughter in Des Moines. She never knows when they will appear and the phone doesn't ring. (she didn't think)
She said she might wake up in the morning and find new pics or maybe be gone for a few hours and come home to new photo's of the grand kids. I thought this looked like a neat idea and realize that I am probably the last person in the world to learn about this. But just in case that isn't the case then here it is. We think we might look into it. The company name is Ceiva and you can click and go to the website here.
I'm giving this product a two thumbs up. Next post I will be giving UPS a two thumbs down rating. And possibly even more digits than that.

wow the only digital frames i have known about are the ones you have to put a memory card into. that is the neatest thing ever that you can be in a different state and send the picture over the telephone lines. my parents would love that. i will so have to look into that.

yeah Val this is ideal for your older relation. It also takes most cards sd, flash, etc.

Well, 1 plus twins, it warmed all the way up to 25 by noon! (I don't live too far from Cliff).
Cliff, please try to keep all your digits under control.

Come on now, be nice to the UPS person!!!

For what it's worth, I didn't know that could be done either. I think it is a neat idea though.

So, can we all send photographs to your frame once its hooked up? I think I have a new hobby for 2008!

No your not the last person in the world to learn about this. I must agree with Rachel. Technology today is way over my head. I sounds like a pretty cool gadget though. Be nice to the delivery man. Have fun. Lisa

That picture frame to the telephone line is great! Mine would probably blink :,:,:, and show the wrong time.

Mrs. Jim has an eight inch TV that shows pictures except we haven't ever used that function. She's only had it three years.

Our neighbor had those inflatables, in the daytime she would turn them off and they laid flat on the lawn.
This year a lawn and decoration service put them and some new stuff up for her. Her husband had gone to New Hampshire to visit his daughter. She wanted to surprise him when he cam home.
I don't know if the decorations or the $700 bill surprised him the more.

I've heard of those digital picture frames, but I'd not heard of the phone connection thingie.
I must say, that is mega cool.
