TECHNOLOGY .....from YOURTIME
DEAD BATTERIES? POWER UP WITH SOLAR JACKET

Two of the most annoying things about portable gizmos are figuring out where to put them and what to do when the batteries dies. The Solar Jacket from Scot eVest may help. Made of a breathable, waterproof nylon, the $425 jacket has 30 pockets for carrying anything from an MP# player to a cell phone. Attached to the back are solar panels that store energy in a battery that fits in any pocket. Then, say, when your digital camera needs a charge, run a USB cable from the camera to the battery. Charging takes two to five hours . Sunlight -- and fashion confidence--- are required.


WATCHES ARE GETTING SMARTER

Watches are no longer just for telling time. With its new Paparazzi model, Swatch had teamed up with MSN Direct to transform timepieces into technological multi taskers capable of providing the wearer with up-to-the minute news, sports scores, weather reports and stock quotes. Exclusive access to Swatch City, specialized free content provided by Time Out Magazine,will keep wearers informed about local cultural events and hip bars in 10 top cities. ( by Samantha Hallock)


PHONING HOME YOUR PHOTOS

Celva's latest LCD frame, the Digital Photo Receiver (celva.com;$150), can display pictures sent from camera phones as well as from e-mail or the Web. Take snapshots or find classics from your phone's gallery and then use the phone's menu to send them to the frame specific, randomly generated CelvaMobile e-mail address. At night, when the frame uses it internal modem to call in and download photos, it will retrieve the shots you sent and automatically display them in its 5-in, by 7 in screen.(if you don't want to wait overnight, you can push a button to download pictures immediately.) Don't worry about spammers or any unsavory types getting hold of the frame's address; in the unlikely event that does happen, you can go online and get a fresh address in minutes.---(by Wilson Rothman)
