The Eye-Fi card is a standard SD memory card with 2GB of storage, but also contains a Wi-Fi transmitter.

The Web-based Eye-Fi Manager is used for managing card settings and upload preferences. The Eye-Fi supports Wi-Fi security using WEP, WPA or WPA2, works with 802.11g, 802.11b and 802.11n networks, and has a range of 90+ feet outdoors, and 45+ feet indoors. The system works with both Mac OS X 10.3+, Windows XP and Windows Vista. The Eye-Fi is $99, and is available immediately.
