You download software onto your PC/Mac, this allows you to control where the photos are stored on your PC and also where they are uploaded to on the web e.g Evernote, Flickr, Facebook, Photobucket, picasa web albums. I do it to photobucket normally so when I sell stuff on here I just take the pics then go to my PC and they are already uploaded to the photobucket site.

Set it up on your wireless network with the USB stick they provide. Your card then holds all of the wireless network details (can store 30 different networks simeltaneously)

Put card in your camera start snapping away, as soon as you return home or are in range of the wireless network the photos then automatically upload to your PC and to your chosen web service.

Easy!!

That sounds quite cool really.

I remember the terrible double length wifi sd cards for PDAs ages ago. Nice to see they've got it actually into the card now!

Why? I was looking at them at the weekend in shops and the picture quality was FAR better than on our Plasma (although our plasma is 4 years old)

Really? I've never seen a shop demo unit look better than my old black and white portable.

Yeah they are pretty awesome. Have mine configured on my PC to be put straight into my dropbox folder. Only problem I find with it is that you can't upload to multiple web services at any one time but they seem to be adding this an upcoming software update.

Nope afaraid not and doesn't look like CF to SD adapters work either.

I like the technology though, if I buy a smaller camera to supplement the DSLR I may just invest in one then. Cheers for the link and I take it all back about you not been one of us!

We are looking at this one. The quality of the Blu Ray they were playing was incredible.

I've had Blu-Ray for 3 years now so am used to it but the picture clarity on this screen blew me away. It was head and shoulders above any plasma they had in the shop. The only things that looked better were the bigger/more expensive LEDs

Well the guy is better looking than Zoolander yet expects to be taken seriously as an internet geek who likes technology and downloading something. As everyone knows we're all fat and ugly so he must be an imposter. Saying that though, his posts have suggested he may be the rare exception to the rule.

Why the change to bold italic rather than the usual bold?

Excellent decision.
