" Cisco Systems - who purchased the Flip Video camera line two years ago today announced that it is closing down the pocket video camera product line:
"As part of the company's comprehensive plan to align its operations, Cisco today announced that it will exit aspects of its consumer businesses and realign the remaining consumer business to support four of its five key company priorities – core routing, switching and services; collaboration; architectures; and video.
As part of its plan, Cisco will close down its Flip business and support current FlipShare customers and partners with a transition plan."
Some have said that it was the Flip video cameras that motivated Apple to work to get mobile video to be the important part of the iPhone that it is today (with iMovie as an app, and Vimeo's new iPhone app).
I still have two Flip cameras - and think they are great little cameras... I particularly enjoyed using them with the underwater housing for an affordable underwater video camera for snorkeling and backyard pool fun.
