    I’ve got an Eye-Fi card. It’s configured to talk to the guest wifi network at work and the one in my apartment.

    It’s seriously freaky how something that small can do wireless magic. The first six pictures on my Flickr stream were deposited there by EyeFi:

    If you click on a description you’ll see the little canned EyeFi label.

    Drawbacks: You have to leave your camera on for transfers to happen. And — anecdotally — man-oh-man, does that sucker drain batteries.

    Funny thing about words:  is the software provided for free, i.e. “complImentary,” or is it software which matches the hardware, i.e. “complEmentary” ?  Or both?

    I use EyeFi cards in my DIY Book Scanner. My makerspace’s book scanner will get a pair, too.
