Although computers are a convenient way to upload, store, and share photos, they are powerless in the face of blackouts or people with magnetic hands. Get a solid-state representation of online albums with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one 8"x8", 16-page hardcover photo book from online photo service Pixable (a $30.94 value, which includes shipping and tax for anywhere in the United States).
Pixable's photo services allow users to print photos from social-media sites such as Facebook and bind them into handsome 8"x8" photo albums that won't ever go offline or be taken over by spambots ($24.95, plus approximately $5.99 for shipping). Pixable's powerfully easy photo compilation makes creating an album as easy as multiple mouse clicks, although traditionalists can replicate the bookbinding experience by pricking their fingers with spine-stitching needles. Compile photos and additional social-network content such as captions, tagging information, comments, and photoshopped troll tattoos from your own profile, or raid friends' files for bounteous data booty. Pixable's background themes provide ideal nesting places for photo eggs, with holiday graphics, colors and monochromes, and event-themed visuals appropriate for weddings, vacations, memorable parties, and mysterious baby arrivals.
