I spy Eye-Fi

So I am waiting in a small cluster of folks to talk to a senior Comcast exec at the Connections conference yesterday and I listen as stealth mode startup Eye-Fi makes their pitch to him.

They have an 802.11 chip crammed on to an SD card. Slap it into a digital camera and you have a wireless link that with a little software magic can automatically send your pictures to a nearby TV screen or even upload them to any one of 20 Web photo service suppliers with which they claim to have deals. Cool! Of course, they aren't ready to talk publicly about their plans yet, so just close your eyes and forget you heard about this, OK?
