Flip video cameras discontinued; make room next to the Betamax
This doesn't mean, however, that we aren't a global village of video-shooting auteurs. We're just using our smartphones to capture our movies.
According to Mashable, the idea of a wi-fi enabled Flipcam was never realized as smart phones quickly satisfied the need for a video-ready device able to transmit important stuff -- like vid of Lady Gaga falling off a piano -- in just seconds.
And really, who needs a well-priced HD-enabled multi-megalpixel pocket-sized digital video camera when you can just download iPhone's 8mm app and take shaky Super-8 style vids that instantly make your memories look like "The Wonder Years?"
Will you miss Flip cams or are you glad to have one less device to tote around?
