Car computer as a photography platform

Today I needed to take a quick photograph outside for an email I was sending to a customer.

Syncing_to_the_networkI used my 35mm digital camera and as soon as I was done, I popped the Compact Flash Micro Drive into the media reader in the FJ's glove compartment.  When I'm not using it as a media reader, it doubles as a glove box light with this nice blue glow radiating from it.

Using my wireless keyboard, I drug the photos into a folder on the FJ's computer that automatically syncs with my other computers at home and at work via the EVDO/WiFi connection.

(Note:  All of this was done while the FJ was safely parked!)

By the time I got back to my office, the photos were waiting for me on my laptop.  I did a quick resize of the photo to fit it in the email and a few minutes later, it was off to the customer.

Terry_with_big_daddyBen, thanks so much for letting me take a photo of "Big Daddy!"  You've done an AMAZING JOB restoring this beautiful Ford!  I won't reveal what's under the hood until you're ready.
