Yes, that will do the trick if you are inside your private network. Still I hope it comes with some encryption algorithim, where every session can be initiated/encrypted by a particular password.

Exactly, if it could just serve up a page on my local network or even use SmartShare.

Bobjengr, the security issue is there, but then again to think of it this should not be a reason to not buy the device. If the person already owns a smart phone and if NSA etc are really spying this rigrously then he is already out there.

Tekochip, its a nice point to raise. Perhaps, they should add more privacy features in there communication protocols, without the picture data being able to make it to the public internet.

I just bought note 3, the best smart phone that is presently out there, and I finally thought that It will fulfill my wish of taking high quality pictures, but the need of having a DSLR is always there. The cameras on smart phones are surely not enough. This device seems to be a great gadget to have.

Very true tekochip, I also strongly agree with you and it is very unnecessarily to put all the picks in to the web. Bu I feels that this will give a new life to all the old digital cameras.

Thanks for sharing Cabe.

NadineJ, you are highlighting a great point cause that when it comes to the cameras life time of the battery is important.

Cabe, Is there a any way of switching Wi-Fi on and off.

I take 98 per cent of my pictures with my        phone. Now if the camera talked to the computer directly then I might buy, no wait, see above. This SD carde begs the question "why are cameras not Wifi? If people are going to pay for this after market put it in the camera. Duh. I will make a note to see if my router will talk to my phone when the Wifi is on, never thought of that!

Did you happen to test how far away a phone or router can be and still get reliable file transfers? This ought to work with a networked drive too, but the most interesting way to use this is to use your phone to upload to a private cloud account. I would expect the security issues to be limited by the range of the Mobi & then it's up to how securely your phone can upload. If you're concerned about the NSA getting your pictures, then you shouldn't be on the net! Another way to look at the EyeFi cards concerning big brother is how lots of times people happen to photograph the police in public and the officers will demand that you hand over your camera, might take your memory card or just demand that you wipe the card. So you might think about removing the EyeFi sticker and replacing it with a generic-looking chinese label....

Cabe--Thank you for the information.   Is this a new development or has it been around awhile?  Really innovative and certainly useful.   I can definitely see applications when visiting a seminar, show, etc etc.  Security--are there secrets anymore?  With NSA, Google, and even commercial concerns data-gathering, do we really have absolute privacy? Will we ever again have privacy?   I think the only real secrets are thoughts not spoken or written.  Great post.

In this new Design News feature, "How it Works," we’re starting off by examining the inner workings of the electronic cigarette. While e-cigarettes seemed like a gimmick just two or three years ago, they’re catching fire -- so to speak. Sales topped $1 billion last year and are set to hit $10 billion by 2017. Cigarette companies are fighting back by buying up e-cigarette manufacturers.
Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
