If you haven’t heard of it before, the Eye-Fi SD card allows users to directly transfer photos to other devices such as PC, smartphones, and tablets without the need to take the card out of your camera.

This leads to unnecessary time on Facebook, stalking people and surfing your classified groups all while waiting for your chat partner to reply.
The internet feels very much like an extension of my home. My own little corner of the internet is very much like the TARDIS: bigger on the inside than on the outside. Games, pictures, documents, notes, and friends all reside within a digital space that is both easy to access and conveniently does not fill up my shelves with junk.
