Another day, another photo frame

Mustek digital picture display is just one of many

Mustek picture frame

Digital photo frames seem a dime a dozen nowadays, though some have some interesting features . But these new 7- and 8-inch screens from Mustek are different: They are relative inexpensive ($100 for the smaller version) and can play MPEG video and music with built-in MP3 speakers, as well as show off your treasured snapshots. Unfortunately, the media apparently can be refreshed only by changing a memory card, rather than a remote Internet connection--meaning that you can't just send new stuff to grandparents in another state, unless you want to snail-mail it to them. That's too bad, because it would have been a good alternative to Webcam software and PC controls for the technologically challenged. (We speak from experience.)
