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...

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
