What it is: Everyone knows paper photos have gone the way of the dodo, but the problem with most digital frames is that they need to be plugged into a computer for you to upload new pics. Don't worry about losing another remote, either, since the touch-sensitive strip lets you smoothly navigate through menus right on the frame. Why they'll want it: You'll be able to connect the frame to Kodak's online photo-sharing service, so you can send and receive new photos of your loved ones almost as soon as they're shot. Another option: If you've got photos floating around on Picasa, Facebook or Twitter, the Kogan WiFi LCD Frame ($129) can pull them straight into your living room. It's also got its own e-mail address, so snapshots can go from phone to home in a flash.
