We certainly have to acknowledge that a device that's used for business purposes but automatically tracks personal information blurs the line between personal and corporate information.

Yes, they let your camera connect to a Wi-Fi network and upload photos to photo-sharing services and even back to your Mac, and there's some Wi-Fi-based geotagging capability. But camera interfaces just aren't rich enough to give users control over the Eye-Fi's features out in the field, and most of the places I take pictures don't have Wi-Fi. Without a Wi-Fi connection, there's no way to send back the pictures and the geotagging feature won't work, either.
