Free Your Photos November 7, 2007

Posted by goodmind in Task Unification.

Digital cameras are pretty cool, and on the whole, make capturing priceless memories a pretty easy process.  Of course, as the technology has evolved, so has our definition of “easy.” 

One of the biggest complaints about digital photography is that once captured, images are forever “trapped” within the confines of the camera.  The prospect of uploading photos onto a computer has become daunting, particularly when we take into account the time spent uploading these same “pics” onto Flickr, Picasa, or what have you.  

That’s why we’re so impressed with the concept behind the Eye-Fi Card. Part SD card, and part flash storage, this little device is also Wi-Fi enabled, so you can upload your memories to your hard drive AND your online sharing site in a single pass. 

It’s a great example of Task Unification that makes a huge difference, even though the tasks being unified weren’t so terrible to begin with.  However, if the digital camera industry is taking suggestions, the next item of business should be finding a way to incorporate tagging into the actually photo-taking process itself.
