From its wood casing to its cardboard back, the 8-by-10-inch Ceiva picture frame doesn’t look much different from any other. But this version from Ceiva Logic (310/887-6799, https://www.ceiva.com ), with a flat-panel LCD, is a bit more high-tech. The $249 Ceiva plugs into your phone line and downloads pictures sent to your personal Web-based photo album. Ceiva’s simple interface has only two buttons–one to control the screen’s brightness, and one that lets you set the ten pictures stored on the frame to stay in a fixed display or to rotate. All you have to do is sit back and cringe at those shots of Aunt Tillie at last summer’s family reunion.
