Gadgets

The Profit Burglar sent me this link to details of the eStarling 2.0 WIFI Digital Photo Frame, yesterday. That brought me up a little short as "the eStarling frame supports all major RSS photo feeds, including Flickr, Picasa, Photobucket, AOL, Smugmug, iPhoto, Gallery,and more", and I'd made up what I thought was a hypothetical gadget that would do just that, pitching an idea to a potential client the week before last.

Since I lost my mobile phone, I've picked up a Nokia N95 as a replacement. It has got an integrated GPS receiver, it's a a fully fledged music player, features built-in WiFi internet access, and sports Carl Zeiss optics on the camera. Some folks have even worked out how to use its accelerometer to make it sound like a light saber when waved through the air.

Much of this remains a mystery to me however as I can't work out how to configure it so that the screen's backlight stays on long enough for me to try the features out.

Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp, Or what's a heaven for?
