Lloyd and I were grocery shopping at Wal*Mart on Sunday and I was looking at this wi-fi sd card. I’ve been interested in them, but I had questions. I carefully turned the box around on its locked hanger-thing to read the back, when Lloyd came over and just twisted the box – snapping it off the hanger – so he could read it.
I was angry at his lack of rule following, so I bought the thing out of spite. Good-bye, forty dollars that I might have spent on something else.
I’m not sure how I feel about the chip. It works well – you take a picture and BAM! It’s on your computer. The downside is that it uses the internet to get it there. I don’t have mine programmed to go to any social/photo websites, but it still travels out to somewhere before it gets to my computer.
That is not entirely great.
The installation directions said ‘take a photo of yourself and it will appear on the screen!’ Well, the first picture I took of myself was most unflattering, and now it’s out there in cyber-space. Plus, I tend to take dozens of pictures of nothing around this place, and that’s just wasting cyberspace, isn’t it?
I just don’t know. Keep the chip or try and sell it on eBay? (Pause for deep belly laughter, since that has gone so well before.)
Side note: I still use the cracked camera for school photos, and after I was done being in the classroom I was downstairs loading photos to our website. (I take the xd card out and put it in the laptop.) I also happened to be eating the day’s snack – Cheez Its. An xd card is very similar in size to a Cheez It. Do you know what is possible to do with an xd card if you’re not paying attention?
(I stopped before it passed my lips.)
