As a student journalist, one of my big problems was getting content online quickly. This was paramount with liveblogging, but we had no easy way of getting content off memory cards quickly.
Enter Eye-Fi, a wi-fi memory card marketed primarily for home use. There’s definite reasons for this. It lacks WPA2 Enterprise support, preventing it from using any corporate networks, and it requires a computer to setup for each new wi-fi network (which must also be available and Internet connected at the time). Within its limits however, an Eye-Fi card is an effective tool.
