I think the nice things about albums, or passing around loose photos, is that (more or less, depending how bossy your rellies are!) you can go at your own pace, stop and spend more time over one, etc. I think the screen can be exciting though, especially for colour - no different, after all, from all those slide shows. But my memory of those as a child is that they soon got boring, because someone else (usually its dad) is in control of the content, and speed at which you look at them etc. You can't just pick one up again for another look. Or maybe you can? Maybe it's more of a group thing? We don't look at photos like that in our house - maybe we need some input from people who do! It is worrying, though, that they never do make it into "analogue" and get lost somewhere in the ether...(With the proviso that maybe some at least could probably afford to be lost )...
