Famatic: A Cool Social Twist On The Digital Picture Frame

Famatic looks like one of those ideas that could be obsolete in 25 years once the social media holdouts die off, and everyone on the face of the planet has a social media account. However, today it would come in mighty handy, especially for those of us who have family — and I’m looking at you Mom and Dad — who’ve yet to join Facebook or Twitter (and probably won’t).

The package is slight but impressive. Actually, “slight” is a good term when it comes to tablets. This one has a breathtaking 9.7-inch screen and retina display, but it packs it into a device that is only one pound in weight. One pound! That means life will be Read More
