All kids photos, all the time

Digital photo wallet is another way to annoy acquaintances


There are plenty of ways to make acquaintances roll their eyes in anticipation of you whipping out photos of your excruciatingly cute progeny. But few can approach the theatrical effect of unfurling a snake of transparent plastic from your wallet.

Brookstone, however, has updated the concept with a "Women's Digital Wallet," a leather bi-fold that includes a detachable viewer with a 1.4-inch screen that holds up to 55 digital images. And the photos can be transferred and updated easily through a USB cable to a computer, according to Outblush, so co-workers will consistently avoid you in the hallway because they know you'll always be armed with a new batch.

The key question, though, is when will they make one of these wallets for men?
