New digital photo frame shipping from Axiom

I've always thought that digital photo frames were a bit silly. I'm all for the digital lifestyle and such, but something about looking at a picture frame that's juts displaying an image on a screen bothers me. Though I'll admit, I'm warming up to them.

This new one from Axion is a 7-inch widescreen frame with a 480 x 234 resolution. It features a brightness control for the best possible picture no matter what the lighting conditions. You can store up to 2GB on a memory card, it supports most major formats.

You can pick one of these up for right around $80.
