Last hurrah for Flip camcorders
I'm still reeling from the shocker that Cisco Systems is shutting down its Flip pocket camcorder business. It's not divesting the business, which makes the top-selling camcorder in the U.S. -- it's closing it down. The end. Good-bye.
New York Times tech columnist David Pogue shared my feelings in an article Thursday titled "The Tragic Death of the Flip."
I was in a Staples store in Norwalk, Conn., Thursday and snapped the above photo of a nice multimedia endcap display for the Flip product line. No close-out sale yet.
