People love sticking pictures of their family on the fridge, but the stainless steel models of recent years don’t have the iron a magnet needs to stay. Whirlpool
has devised a gadget to resolve the conflict: a digital photo frame mounted to the front of the fridge. Simply load the images into the screen hanging from the Central Park refrigerator, and scroll through them like a digital album. Later this year, the company plans to release an iPod dock, a little laptop called a “digital message center,” and other fridge-front gadgetry.
