There’s no shortage of digital frames on the market these days, each promising to liven up your room with an endless cycle of your most precious memories. But all too often, these 21st-century frames behave more like 12th-century frames, keeping the same image locked in place — not because they can’t support variety, but because owners often forget to switch things up. But with the Skylight Frame, you might finally have a frame that is as flexible and dynamic as you and your memories. Simply email the frame when you have a new photograph you’d like to show off, and see the image displayed promptly within the Skylight Frame.

Since you’re always emailing or texting images to friends and loved ones, adding the Skylight Frame to your contact list serves as an even easier way to share moments with folks around the world. Rather than relying on a smartphone screen to display a special moment, you can instead throw it up on the big(ger) screen — the Skylight Frame measures 10.7 by 7.4 inches.

Each and every Skylight uses a dedicated email address (which you select yourself), which means you can send photos to multiple frames (and individuals) simultaneously. While photos will appear as a slideshow on the digital frame, customers have the option of freezing certain photographs that are particularly meaningful. And anytime a new image arrives, you’ll see a “New Photos Have Arrived” notification on the touchscreen display — simply tap it to pull the newest photo into your collection. The Skylight Frame boasts a memory capacity of 4GB, which translates to about 4,000 photos. Photos can be easily removed using the “Delete” button on the touchscreen as well. And should you run out of room, your oldest photos will be booted to allow for newer assets to come in.

For folks concerned about privacy issues, Skylight notes that its email server only holds onto an image until it has been downloaded by the smart frame. As soon as you’re in possession of the image, the picture is removed from Skylight’s servers.

All Skylight needs to operate is a functional Wi-Fi connection and an electric plug, so the digital frame can go just about anywhere in the world. You can buy a Skylight Frame now from the company website for $159.

Amazon kills Echo Loop, improves Echo Frames
amazon kills echo loop improves frames

When Amazon first announced the Echo Loop in 2019, it raised a lot of eyebrows -- and a lot of hands were raised to be the first ones to try out the device. The smart ring promised to be a way to subtly receive notifications from your phone, activate and control Alexa, and more.

On Thursday, November 19, Amazon announced that the Echo Loop will no longer be supported. The good news, however, is that the company is doubling down on the Echo Frames, a set of smart glasses with built-in Alexa functionality. These frames are designed to operate just like a normal set of glasses, but with smart features implemented in a seamless way.

Sony’s new ultra-wide full-frame lens is the first of its kind
sony 12 24mm f28 g master first lens of its kind fe on a7iii

Sony arguably makes the best full-frame camera on the market, but the true strength of its Alpha-series mirrorless system may lie in its lenses. The new 12-24mm f/2.8 G Master is out to prove this. It is the widest f/2.8 full-frame zoom of any manufacturer -- and at $3,000, it won't come cheap.

Shipping August 13, the 12-24mm marks Sony's 11th lens in its high-end G Master line. It offers a significantly wider field of view than Sony's existing f/2.8 wide zoom, the 16-35mm f/2.8, and competes head-on with the Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DN, a lens that we said sets a new bar for ultra-wide zooms in our review.

The 2021 Escalade has a 38-inch OLED screen and my god, it’s gorgerous
2021 Cadillac Escalade 38-inch screen

In a world abuzz about electric cars, the Cadillac Escalade is a throwback. It’s an old school SUV with truck-based construction, a larger-than-necessary body, and a burly fossil fuel engine. It doesn’t look like a vehicle that will tempt people out of Teslas. Yet the Escalade is Cadillac’s de facto flagship.

To compete, Cadillac has loaded the redesigned 2021 Escalade with tech, from a massive OLED 38-inch OLED screen to an advanced version of the Super Cruise driver assist system that can execute automatic lane changes. The interior is truly cutting edge, even if the powertrain remains old-school.
Yes, it has a 38-inch display
The 2021 Escalade gets an infotainment screen scaled to its massive size. Measuring 38 inches, it’s the first automotive application of OLED tech, according to Cadillac. When the Escalade goes on sale in Summer 2020, it will be the largest display in any production car.
