hi everybody! i have a quick question for anyone that might be able to help me. i am thinking of getting my mom one of those digital picture frames for xmas this year. does anyone know of a good one that works well with macs? i am not sure if you hook them directly up to your computer or put your memory card directly into it. i haven't done much research, but knowing this site, everyone is pretty knowledgable about everything!! any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!!!

i know of some that actually hook up to the telephone line (something like that) and are actually updated with every new picture u choose to be sent to the frame. yeah, u gotta register the frame so only you can upload new and different pics whenever u please. these run around $150-200 bucks the last time i checked.

on macmod.com i think someone converted an ibook to a picture frame thing. If your good at that stuff you could probably do it. If you have alaptop laying around :)

If you have a picture of you sleeping make sure that's on a card somewhere she can put into it on the day.. For some reason most of the girls I know love pictures of their other halves sleeping peacfully!

How is the screen quality on those beasts? Admirable, or just so-so?

To be honest, I didn't look at it too long. My girlfriend and I were at best buy and she saw it and loved it. From what i saw it wasnt too bad, i think its something like 320x230 or something around there.
