Hacking disposable digital cameras gets a little easier

So the big catch about those new $11 disposable 1.3 megapixels digital cameras is that the only way to get the photos off of them is to bring them back to the photo store, which extracts the JPEGs saved on its internal memory, and then either makes prints of them or copies the files onto a CD-R or both. That is, of course, unless you want to get into the business of hacking the cameras, which not an inconsequential number of people are willing to do to get a decent digicam for eleven bucks. Making the job even easier, it turns out that vintage Palm connector cables are nearly a close fit to the port on the camera, though hacking the camera is by no means a project for the faint of heart.
