I understand why some would want Wi-Fi enabled SD cards but I just don't understand why anyone would actually want to use it. In my case if I have my laptop available to upload the pictures to than I'd rather save the camera's battery and take the few extra seconds to just plug the card into my memory reader. Maybe I'm missing some other catchy feature that comes along with Eye-Fi that would make it more worth it.

...and send pix directly to Flickr or other photo-sharing sites. You can control when this happens as well (for example, if you want to perform some photo-editing first). See http://forums.eye.fi/viewtopic.php?t=120 for details.

It's amazing how illogical a business built on binary logic can be.

What I really want to know about the eye-fi is if you can put it in a laptop that has an SD slot and use it as a normal Wi-Fi card.

The Eye-Fi card isn't designed to transfer anything but the pictures it stores. See http://forums.eye.fi/viewtopic.php?t=222 for details.
