Digital Gift for the Un-Digital: CEIVA

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, December 10, 2009

A digital gift for someone decidedly un-digital. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. How can you send digital photos to someone who doesn't have email, a computer, or any kind of Internet connection at all. Digital frame maker CEIVA makes it possible with a line of frames and a service it calls PicturePlan. The frame can use a wireless or wired Internet connection...but can also be plugged into a regular phone line. Put it at Grandma's house a thousand miles away....and pictures can show up on it every day from children and grandchildren scattered around the country. Plans start at about 7 dollars a month...and a year of service is included with a CEIVA frame. CEO Dean Schiller says photos can also be sent from a new iPhone app ...

"Called CEIVA Snap. Choose the CEIVA you want to send the picture to and simply send directly from the iPhone. That's true on all camera phones actually."

Frames start at under 130 dollars. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com. I'm Fred Fishkin.
