Buy This-Kodak Pulse Digital Photo Frame

We continue our journey through one of the biggest gift-buying times around the world with the “Buy This” series.  A countless number of “bad” gifts will be purchased and gifted only to be tossed aside to join the museum of bad gifts.  Unfortunately well-meaning tech-centric gifts often end this way.  I’m here to change all of that with yet another useful gadget gift idea, a touch-screen, wi-fi Digital Photo Frame.

A little over a year ago I began a search for an inexpensive, but easy-to-use internet-connected digital photo frame.  What I found out is there is really only one product that fits that bill – the Kodak Pulse Digital Photo Frame.

I purchased the 10” version of this digital photo frame for my parents.  The frame is fairly easy to set up and use and allows you to send photos over a wi-fi internet connection through a web interface on your computer or via e-mail.  It also as a touch-screen user interface that allows you to manually run through the photos, change the viewing settings (collage, single photo, speed that it switches through the photos etc) and delete photos.  You can of course add photos with the card reader as well.  Check out the complete review of the Kodak Pulse Digital Photo Frame I posted last year.

It’s available on Amazon in two sizes:

10-inch Kodak Pulse Digital Photo Frame $169

7-inch Kodak Pulse Digital Photo Frame $100


Both are great gift ideas for family and friends (or yourself).  And if you’re buying for a less-technically savvy person you can help them set it all up fairly easily without worrying about tech-support phone calls in the future.
