Technology for Grandma
My boys and their cousins got their grandmother a Christmas gift two years ago which she uses every day. Generally many times a day she uses it. What gift can you think of that can continue to give and give and give.
Ceiva is a brand of photo frame. www.Ceiva.com is their site. It shares many similarities with other digital photo frames but it also is somewhat unique. It can be setup by the technically savvy grandchildren to download new photos every night. After being setup, the screen is plugged into the wall and to an unused phone jack it runs without any attention. Grandchildren all over the country can upload photos to albums on Ceiva’s site and they will be automatically downloaded to Grandma’s picture frame. Now Grandma thinks it is magic but that is beside the point. This is a terrific way to keep a long distant loved one in the family loop. It does require a service fee, the best deal is $249.00 for three years. That sounds like a lot but if you have a technophobic loved one who will smile every time they see a new photo it is well worth the price.
Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!
