It's a great gift for any techie to get for their parents or grandparents: A digital photo frame, while being one of those darn new-fangled gadgets they curse at, doesn't really require any extensive training for luddite grannies to operate. In fact, once you load it up with pictures of you and the family for them, it pretty much runs itself. But to make the gift of digital photos even better, the New York Times is reporting that soon, you'll be able to update grandpa's frame with the latest pictures of little Suzie without stopping by with an SD memory card...

Via The New York Times:

A new company called Isabella Products will start a service called Vizit in mid-October that lets you send photos to its 11-inch LCD digital photo frame remotely, using a cellular network.

We're not sure what cellular network is involved in this new idea (either Verizon or AT&T, Isabella said), but provided that you're able to get on board, this seems like a great idea for families that live far apart. You can consider it an ever-changing mantle piece that always has the grandkids' latest school photos and pictures from the last holiday.

You can send photos to the frame over the Web, too, from VizitMe.com. The anticipated price for one of the Vizit units is $299, and a monthly subscription rate has yet to be determined, if it will even exist at all.
