Eye-Fi card now allows selective uploads to sites
In Brief: Mozilla has already released a third beta of the upcoming Firefox 3.6 update, bringing a variety of bug fixes and security enhancements. Eye-Fi has updated its photo uploading utility with Selective Share, a new feature that allows users to selectively share only certain pictures on sites such as Flickr.
Firefox 3.6 b3 features a new system for integrating third-party software, helping to protect against crashes, while more than 80 bug fixes address various issues relating to performance, security and stability. Scripts can now be run synchronously to decrease time needed for loading pages. The third beta can be downloaded directly from the company's website.
Eye-Fi's new Selective Share feature is designed to prevent accidental uploads to sites such as Facebook, Flickr, Snapfish or Picasa. Without leaving the camera interface, users can click the Protect or Lock buttons to choose which images to upload to the Internet portals, while the entire library of files will be simultaneously sent to a Mac or PC. The new feature is available for anyone with a card enabled for online sharing.
