Picture this: Four new Samsung digital photo frames

Samsung introduces four new digital photo frames.

The 8-inch SPF-85V: save this one for the small, cute pics. Samsung

Digital photo frames. You love 'em, I love 'em. Well, actually I've only ever seen one in use before and that one was broken. Call me old-fashioned (or just old) but I guess I'm just not at the point financially where I can justify the price.

Actually, I don't think I'm at the point morally. I mean come on, I don't think I could sleep at night after spending $200 on a picture frame. Digital or not.

Apparently I'm slowly moving into the minority on this. On Wednesday, Samsung announced four new digital photo frames.
