Oh you mean the cell phones that charge to move video off the cell phone to anywhere else as compared to the Flip where it's FREE?

I have to disagree with you on this one. I've looked at several Smartphones and NONE seem to be able to make as good a video (in terms of quality, ease of use, etc.) as the FlipHD. Nor would I expect it to.

What, every cell phone can record an hour of HD video? Even if this was the case (which I sort of doubt), there was more to the Flip than the camera -- the supporting software that let you create mini movies was also very intuative and easy to use.

I am sure Cisco tried to sell Flip with no buyers. Every cell phone has a camera/video as good as or better than the flip - and it is "free" and one lees thing to put in your bag. Bad timing, not all investments work out. If one out of ten make $$ you are doing well.

What about all of the folks who work for The Flip -- don't they count for anything? I tell you, this sort of thing makes me want to cry...

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
