    Anyone using EyeFi?

    I've been using EyeFi (wifi enabled SD card) quite well with my MacBook. I've tried two EyeFi apps (including the one from the manufacturer) and neither wants to comunicate with the card on the A500. Anyone using this card, and tell me what and how you are using it? Thanks, John
