postheadericon Kodak Pulse email-to-photo-frame system down for days, millions of memories trapped in the cloud

We definitely know quite a few people (including this very editor!) who bought their parents Kodak Pulse WiFi photo frames over the holidays, since they seem like a perfect way to share pictures without any fuss — you can just email the frame directly. Unfortunately, it seems like this cloud service has a dark, dark lining: Kodak’s backend email servers have been down since at least Christmas Eve, rendering the Pulse’s most interesting feature essentially useless. What’s worse, that status display above is more or less buried on the Pulse web site, so it’s not even immediately clear that the problem is on Kodak’s side — and when things turn back on we’re guessing more than one Pulse owner will find tons of duped photos on their frames from multiple email attempts, since the system doesn’t confirm email receipt. We’ve heard a few anecdotal stories about email photo delivery slowing down / stopping during previous high traffic periods, so you’d think Kodak would have sorted this out by now, but we guess not — we’ll let you know when the company tells us about a fix.

postheadericon Chumby grows up, gains competitors’ Dashing good looks?

There’s not much to go on here — just a picture of a small-screened device we’ve never seen before — but if that six-fingered squid is the real deal, there’s a brand-new Chumby on the way. Gizmodo says the T-shaped unit’s working codename is “Chumby Opus,” and we wonder if that might actually refer to song; If that grille on the left’s also duplicated on the right, perhaps we’ll get some stereo speakers this time around. Wouldn’t that be nice? Either way, it looks like black, slightly leaning flat-panel displays are still in style.

postheadericon DIA Parrot digital photo frame by nodesign is not a digital photo frame

How do you a frame a digital photo without framing it? That’s the mind-bending question considered by Parrot and the nodesign agency, and the “mysterious object” known as the DIA Parrot is their answer. Just what is it? We’ll let Parrot explain.
What is striking is its 10×4 inch high resolution screen. Dismantled, deconstructed, disconnected from the frame as if there was nothing behind, this screen is transparency, is light. The picture, your photo, appears through this “light box” in a brand new aesthetic dimension…

“The photo frame designed by Jean-Louis Frechin is very mysterious,” continues Henri Seydoux. “Jean-Louis was smart or ‘crazy’ enough to dismantle the LCD screen we get used to, and the result is quite simply magical. We don’t see where the photo comes from… It is simply there, on this transparent and half-dismantled screen… It is prestidigitation!”

Look for it to set you back $500 when it launches in February. You didn’t expect a brand new aesthetic dimension to come cheap, did you?
