With all the technology at our disposal, where's the "simple as a toaster" solution? A long time ago I had seen a couple of picture frames that you connect via phone jack and push your images to space on an account and they magically appeared in the picture frame set. This, of course, required a paid subscription for the service, but was dirt simple. Alas, I don't think anything like that exists anymore. Probably priced themselves out of the market with subscription fees.

More likely it was that services from Cevia and Kodak demanded proprietary photo frames.  They were killed by online services like Flicker and Pic casa which let anyone see photos with nearly any device.
