Sandisk Photo Album

I like the look of this. When I first saw it (and for that matter when I first saw the original version ages back) I thought how cool it would be if you could just plug in a USB hard drive. I didn’t notice at first, but it turns out this version accepts USB flash drives, so there’s a good chance that it’ll work with a spinning version, no? Or am I just hoping? They mention their Cruzer drives, of course. Anyway, I don’t know if there’s any intrinsic technical difference between a USB flash or hard drives, but why would there be? (So many questions in this post…) Here’s hoping.

Also interesting is the second CF slot, which can store reduced-resolution versions of user-selected images specifically for TV viewing. Handy.

Wild! Then they become self-aware…
