PhotoVu’s new 19-inch widescreen digital picture frame ($1,200) can receive images wirelessly, use RSS feeds for collecting images from photo-sharing sites such as Flickr and Picasa, and can be remotely managed through a Web browser.
An optional USB hard drive and USB flash drive are also available for feeding photos to the frame without requiring a computer. Not only is it an impressive way to show off your photos, it’s also an impressive way to show your portfolio to clients.
