I am so excited. This Christmas we gave VUDU boxes to my parents, my Mother-in-law, brother and his wife.
Other than the fact that they too will now be able to enjoy the VUDU entertainment experience, the greatest part is that now Grandma can see the kids grow in nearly real-time. (We live in Seattle and my family all lives in Colorado.)
Like most people, we take hundreds of digital photos, but again like most, they are largely held hostage in our computer. Sure, occasionally we email a few out, but most of the time our family complains that they don’t get to see enough of the kids.
Well I am so happy that VUDU has now rescued us from a digital photo mutiny!
How you ask? Simple. I opened a Flickr account. Found a plug-in for iPhoto that allows a one-click export to Flickr and voila, with VUDU Labs now all my family can see our photos the instant they are uploaded to Flickr. And right on their HDTV’s in the comfort of the living room, versus computer monitor in the back office or spare bedroom…
Don’t get me wrong. We love movies! But I think when asked what’s so cool about VUDU, most of my family would answer, “it allows us to stay in touch without the computer layer in between…”
Try it out for yourself.
Look out YouTube, Donnigan family video’s may be next!
