For Dad: Pictures of Lily (and Everyone Else)

Any parent with a digital camera, or grandchildren, has more digital photos than wall space. The solution: A framed LCD that presents a continuous slide show of photos downloaded into its internal memory. The resulting problem: It ain't cheap.

Pacific Digital's MemoryFrame lists for $450 for the 8-by-10-inch version, and $300 for the 5-by-7-incher. Either size will accept photos from a PC via a USB connection, or directly from the memory cards that go into your camera. The 5-by-7 model can hold up to 55 photos, cycling through them at a rate that you define.

By comparison, Ceiva, at first glance, offers a cheaper alternative--its 5-by-7 frame costs only about $150. But it only gets the pictures over a phone line, and the phone connection requires a subscription--$10 a month, $113 a year, or $320 for three years. If Dad keeps the frame going for two years, the Ceiva will be considerably more expensive.
