It was only 10 years ago that the concept of downloading single songs became the method of choice in enjoying music on portable devices.

Have you ever wondered how many photographs are taken each year around the world? Or how many of those photos ultimately make their way onto the Internet where friends and family scattered in dozens of different cities and countries can see them? I often think about such things, and about the fact that just a few short years ago there wasn't even an Internet to share photos on. But now there's not only an Internet for sharing every aspect of our lives, but there are also more and more cameras that are capable of wirelessly sharing those moments.This might just be the biggest development in image capturing technology since the advent of colour photography! And that is why you should read this blog―to learn why your next camera should have built-in WI-FI capabilities!
