Eye-Fi Mobile X2 Shoots Pics Straight to a Mobile Device

The Eye-Fi's "Direct Beam" magicalness is mobile—doing what the little Wi-Fi cards should have been all along. The new models skip your network entirely, creating a link between camera and mobile device.

What gadget? Lots! Smartphones and tablets will get a suite of Direct Beam-compatible apps dropped on them, allowing for in-the-field transfers. So, for instance, you could snap a photo, shoot it over to your iPad, and then edit it with the wonderful new touchy Photoshop. That's a pretty nifty setup, whether you're a photog pro or not. An 8 GB SD model will be out for $80 later this week.

This is a cool idea, but with my luck the wifi network would go down the day I needed to use this!

Bu then could someone hack your signal and get to all your info on the card?
