The Flip Cam is dead

So Cisco have ditched the Flip

After spending serious money on the company they have given up on it. Perhaps because it was no longer fit for purpose (though surely they could have improved it to keep it up to date), perhaps because your iphone does the job, perhaps because they did not know what to do with it.

I must admit I still like mine. It takes me too long to get the camera up and running on the iphone and I like the fact I don't have to care about the Flip. Mine even has tooth marks from the dog.

But what it does show is that things move fast. A company bought for $590 million in 2009 is just not worth bothering with in 2011.

And my Super 8 camera sees off another challenger!
