Technology is generally meant to make life easier, but often users are bogged down in complicated process with programing, uploading and sharing their many different gadgets. Eye-Fi, the maker of location-aware memory cards that can wirelessly upload data, has continued to expand their capabilities. Just this week, they added a new card that can wirelessly upload video and another that can automatically geotag your video.
The system automatically uploads your data onto sites you deem appropriate, such as Flickr, YouTube or Facebook. The newest geotagging-enabled card automatically labels your photos by location and lets you upload from more than 10,000 WiFi hotspots around the country. This type of technology simplifies the process of sharing your personal content. By streamlining the already simple process, these developments continue to shrink the divide between those who want to share their content and those who know and do share it (like at our Good Ideas Presentation). Our continuing coverage of sharing in the modern age expands with the inclusion of personal photo and video. However, we hope that users are aware of the potential for privacy violations with this technology, so maybe it isn’t a streamlined process at all. What do you think?
