Promising New Technology for Wi-Fi Enabled Secure Digital Memory Cards

Wi-Fi memory cards coming to cameras | CNET CNET is out with an article on Eye-Fi, a company that is set to release new camera memory cards this Fall which will allow you to transfer your photos wirelessly to your PC or to online photo-sharing websites.

This is exciting technology indeed.

It looks like the cards will hold 2GB and sell for about $100. Even more exciting to me than Wi-Fi image transfer is the possibility to use Wi-Fi hotspots to auto geotag images prior to transfer. If by using hotspot geolocational data, Wi-Fi enabled chips could accurately geotag images, this would represent a great step forward for geotagging.

It will be interesting to watch this technology unfold.
