RIP Flip

Flip, flop. This week marked the final nail in the coffin for the Flip video camera. The iPhone was seen to flee the scene of the crime, taking HD video of the entire event. 

They still had pretty strong sales but realized that the end was nigh. This is yet another example of a product that needed to be more innovative and less adaptive. They should have had the ability to upload straight to Youtube ages ago but they didn’t. When Cisco bought the company that makes the Flip, they should’ve weighed their options better and realized that with the rising stars that smartphones were becoming, the threat of competitors was completely overwhelming.

So, goodbye Flip. I salute you for being a HD video alternative that suited many people and their needs.
