Intouch IT7150 Digital Photo Frame Adds Wi-Fi, RSS Support

We're guessing you went ahead and took care of most of your holiday shopping yesterday, but if you're anything like us, you'll stumble across a few people here and there that you still need to buy for. If you end up in that scenario, a digital photo frame is always a safe bet. It's kind of like the modern day fruit cake, but way more functional.

The Intouch IT7150 is a stylish, useful choice, as this digital frame not only shows slideshows but also streams Internet radio stations wirelessly and gives users the ability to watch videos and receive RSS updates. Thanks to the built-in Wi-Fi module, users have instant access to news, weather, social media, other dynamic content and online photo galleries, as well as allowing users to organize and share their own photos through a partnership with FrameChannel. As for photos, they can be uploaded from the Web or via a PC, Wi-Fi or memory card. As expected, Facebook integration is bundled, and the 7" touch panel is sure to get lots of fingerprints due to the amount of functionality that's included here. It's available now for $229.99, so be sure you really, really appreciate that special someone before committing.

These things were tentatively priced fairly low when they first came to the market a few years back. When they were an instant smash hit and people wanted them, the prices for them skyrocketed almost right away without the products being noticeably improved.

I resented that then, and still have trouble paying so much for something that isn't that expensive to make. Until they check their "profit margin lust" at the door, they'll not be a part of my world.
