Flip Video Meets The End of the Road

Everything is in HD these days. We all want to record the best memories in the highest quality. When consumer HD video cameras came out...
it was a BIG deal. The Flip was a big deal, because it was small and able to record HD very easily. I admit, I bought a HD video camera, not the Flip, about 3 years ago. cameras were able to record HD video, on a regular point and shoot camera. Then...the revolution came with mobile phones being able to record 720p. At that point, who needed video cameras, or even digital cameras. Cisco, developer of the Flip, has decided to retire this camera, due to the abilities of mobile phones. Unfortunately, this means the demise of 550 jobs. RIP the was a fun ride.
