Apparently the items have been selling quite well even though I think they are overpriced.
Why not get an old laptop on ebay with windows 98 on it and a low en processor (something that doesn't need a big fan) Detach the screen, flip it around put it a nice wood frame and have something twice the size that can do so much more
of course you might say time it takes isnt worth the $100 it would cost to buy a digial picture frame. but the finished picture frame would not be the equivalant product of the picture frame.. it would more likely be a $1000 picture frame. :-)
