Media Street has created a platform called LifeGoRound that serves as a content portal for its eMotion Social Connect digital frame, an 8-inch Wi-Fi-enabled display priced at $149. The LifeGoRound platform enables you to view photos stored at sharing sites like Facebook, Flickr, Picasa, Photobucket, and Walmart.

….I have been using the eMotion frame on my desk, and it’s almost like having a second display for monitoring Facebook, Twitter, and RSS feeds. Media Street has a few kinks to work out, but the LifeGoRound platform and eMotion frame are a fun way to go social and share photos.

One thought on “The New York Times – Gadgetwise Blog Reviews Norm’s products

  1. I wanted to Thank You Rik for reviewing both, our new social-sharing platform called LifeGoRound, as well as the first LifeGoRound-compliant Digital Photo Frame.

    I also wanted to point out a few new features that your readers may be interested in. LifeGoRound can now send your photos as Tweets and directly in as your Facebook status updates… plus, automatically, each photo gets its own short-URL making it extremely easy to share…

    We wanted to build a robust feature-set around sharing your photos, videos and tweets in ways never done before. When you share a photo or an album with a friend or family member it automatically appears in their LifeGoRound, in real-time and on their Digital Frame. Any WiFi Digital Frame can take the feeds from your LifeGoRound… we wanted it to be an open, fun and simple system.

    We also created a very cool email address for members of LifeGoRound so you, your friends and family can send photos via email directly to your LifeGoRound account… ( … you can now send photos to Grandma in the easiest fashion possible.

    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or ideas on how we can make your photo sharing a better experience… Please email me (normlevy @ at any time or connect with me in LifeGoRound. My user name is “normlevy”, what is yours?

    Best wishes,
