Some Tiny Technology

Kim Hart

The familiar mantras of the Consumer Electronics Show -- Bigger! Better! Faster! Cheaper! -- continue to fly around the showroom floor this year. For example, you can catch a glimpse of Panasonic's 150-inch plasma TV, or Sony's ultra-thin flatscreens.


Some of the things that caught my eye, though, are the tiniest. I saw 2-gig
mp3 players small enough to wear dangling from your necklace. Ditto for stylish flashdrives that are so small they look like lockets (intended for females, of course).


Digital photo frames seem to be everywhere this year (here's a good round up by reviewed.com.), but the ones getting attention are the largest and the smallest. Take these made by Digital Foci that are meant to be high-resolution keychains. But with 32-megabits of memory, it's hard to know how many pictures it can hold or how great the image will actually be.

32 megabits is 4 megabytes, which is enough to hold an 8 megapixel jpeg. What's the screen resolution?

It's actually 32 Megabytes - the company says it holds approximately 120 photos. The software it comes with will resize the pictures for you to fit the screen resolution. Saw this at CES - with the OLED screen the image quality is EXCELLENT!
