My book does not mention "Direct" mode, that I am aware of. However, it does mention transferring image directly by using Ad hoc mode. Direct mode, according to Eye-Fi is for use with iPhones, iPads, Androids, etc., which I do not discuss at all in my book.
Ad hoc mode is for direct use with computers (for non Wi-Fi router transfers involving the Internet). On the Eye-Fi website FAQ discussing Direct mode, it lists Direct mode as having a lower priority than Ad hoc mode.
