My Mom is moving to Florida . . . I want to be able to send her a
daily e-mail photo of my kids via my cmpuer to a device I'll buy for

Hi lambeau-ga,

Idiot-proof - it sounds like you are looking for an Internet Appliance
for your mom! Have a look at this link : - Home & Office Computing : Internet Appliance

"The Compaq iPAQ Home Internet Appliance makes getting to your e-mail
and the Internet as easy as 1-2-3. With a simple setup, no software to
load and built-in help, no computer experience is necessary.
Personalized content from MSN™ delivers e-mail, shopping and surfing
meant just for you, while the small, elegant design fits the most
discriminating tastes. Whether you're an Internet novice or a
cyberspace jockey, the iPAQ Home Internet Appliance can open a window
to the Web."

Among the key features that you will find useful :

"Easy to set up, Easy to use" 
"Turns on and off like a TV and automatically connects to the
"Flashing red light lets you know when you have a new e-mail message"

As far as price goes, the iPAQ Home Internet Appliance IA-2 is
$299.99. It seems to be available at WalMart too.

On your end, the most hassle-free way to send pictures via email using
your computer would be using a digital camera that can communicate
with your computer. Most such digital cameras also have user-friendly
software that allows you to easily manage and send your image files.

One such camera that I found is the ipalm™ Digital Camera by Panasonic

[scroll to middle of page]
"Easy Mail™ Attachment*— Using the Easy Mail Attachment feature, you
can easily attach images to an e-mail message. Simply push the "MAIL"
and shutter button on your ipalm Digital Still Camera. The installed
driver software will automatically boot up, transfer images to your
PC, open a "SEND" mail file, and attach your image."

I hope this answers your question. Basically, you would get your mom
the Internet Appliance, and you would get an ipalm or similar digital
camera, and voila, there you go - idiot-proof image email sending and
receiving! Hope you find this helpful, if not, please do not hesitate
to request further clarification. Thank you for using Google Answers.

Warmest regards,

wow..that answer was a bit pointless, digital picture frames anyone?!
having worked on them (and having developed a MUCH better delivery
system) i think that's the ideal solution; no extra features to be a ; sony makes one as does a company called
