Eye-Fi with My Little Eye... Wireless Photo Uploads

Uploading digital photos from a camera to a computer is a task that lots of people (myself included) tend to put off since it takes time and requires digging for the USB cable. (Which drawer did I put it in again?) Wouldn’t it be great if there was an easier way to get photos from camera to computer hard drive—or better yet, directly to a bogging or social networking site?
A startup called Eye-Fi thought so, too. And they did something about it: developed the Eye-Fi wireless SD card. This is a 2B SD card that pops into a digital camera just a like a regular card. Only difference is, it’s got a built-in wireless transmitter. So instead of plugging in a cable, all you have to do is turn on the camera within range of your home WiFi network and grab the photos. 

Eye-Fi Wireless SD Card
The Eye-Fi card is also compatible with a variety of printing and sharing Web sites, including: Costco.com, dotphoto, facebook, flickr, Fotki, Gallery2, Kodak Gallery, phanfare, photobucket, Picasa Web Albums, RitzPix, Sharpcast, Shutterfly, SmugMug, snapfish, TypePad, VOX, Wal-Mart, webshots, and Windows Live.  
Here are a few technical specs: static WEP security, 90+ feet range outdoors (45+ feet indoors), compatible with 802.11g, b and backwards-compatible 802.11n networks.
I haven’t tried the Eye-Fi card myself (waiting till they come out with a version in xD format for my camera). If you do give it a try, let me know what you think.
