Well, we're here to tell you that eStarling has now busted out version … » 12/20/07 11:30am 12/20/07 11:30am

Ovoid Digital Photo Frame is Not Exactly Excellent

You can tell digital photo frames are getting to be a commodity item when designers go far afield, even creating egg-shaped units to adorn the desktops of novelty-crazed grandmas and their minions.

Next-Gen eStarling Picture Frame Hands On: Did They Fix It?

Remember the eStarling?

PMA 07: Pandigital 15" Frame, Thinner But with a Huge Honkin' Screen

Sure, there are digital picture frames popping up everywhere, but this Pandigital model just rolled out here at PMA 2007 is different. First of all, it's huge, 15 inches diagonal with a 1024x768 screen.

eStarling Woes: Digital Picture Frame Shipped with Wrong AC Adapter

We continue the saga of our dog-ugly eStarling, where now it appears that the company has shipped us (and thousands of other unfortunate customers) an AC adapter with voltage that's too low for the hapless digital picture frame to communicate more than a few feet via Wi-Fi. Promising to send a suitable replacement in… » 12/27/06 1:32pm 12/27/06 1:32pm
