The Flip has flopped

Flip Camera, my trusted toy has seen its last days. I'm upset but I'm sure there will be other products to take its place. 

In 2009 Cisco bought Flip. Last week it announced that it plans to discontinue the range. With Cisco experiencing the same financial challenges as many companies it has decided to focus on its core offerings. It believes it has been spreading its offerings too widely. Flip looses out in this decision - even though the product is still making a profit. Cisco announced this week it will no longer make Flip cameras and is pulling back on its consumer product strategy.

It is believed that the Kodak will pick up most of the Flip market but  iPhone or Android are also sure to provide an equally good service very shortly. I'm still sad though:(
