Seven things you're not doing on the Internet (but should be)

Finally, OurPictures Network is building a service that should satisfy both the tech-savvy and the digitally impaired. It adds the option to order prints online and pick them up at a photo lab in your neighborhood. Share your account with Grandma (up to four users get access for $50 a year) and you can send photos right to her computer—she doesn't have to fuss with finding and downloading them herself. Even those who aren't OurPictures members can receive your photos easily enough, by following a link in an e-mail notification you send them. Either way, recipients can order professional prints online or easily make prints on their own computer printers (the software does a nice job of formatting photos and optimizing settings to suit particular printer models). The company's working on additional consumer-friendly photo-sharing options, including viewing images on your TV set. A free preview version, with basic photo-sharing capability up and running, is available on the company Web site.
