You can tell Cedia must be in full swing. !<http://www.blogsmithmedia.com/www.engadget.com/media/2008/09/9-3-08-vaio_cp1.jpg! Been thinking about getting one for dear old Dad. At http://www.engadget.com/2008/09/03/sony-brings-wifi-enabled-vaio-cp1-digiframe-to-the-states/ they show the Sony VGF-CP1.
It is $300 has has a 7-inch 800x480 widescreen. Support Picasa streaming, has an SD/CF card reader, built-in speakers, internet radio and digital clock. So, it really is the clock radio/picture frame of the future. Nice gift for anyone
Also if you've got satellite, get the "TiVo HD XL":http://www.engadget.com/2008/09/04/tivo-hd-xl-dvr-150-hours-of-hd-recording-599-99-available-no/ which is $600 but has 150 hours on the disk (vs. 5 hours on my Comcast Motorola one). And it is a TiVo too so way easier to use than Microsoft TV. In theory you can use it with Digital Cable, but I'm sur that is hard!
