By now, you’ve surely heard about the death of the Flip. Yes, you can just as easily record video on your smartphone or digital camera, but the Flip Video holds a special place in digital product innovation. And this week would have seen another major innovation called the FlipLive.
This is a sad day for soccer moms and casual videographers alike. I’ll admit that I was more than skeptical about the original Flip Video camcorder (by Pure Digital, at the time), since I said a regular digital camera could shoot video too. Then, the brand grew on me. The simplicity grew on me. And I got it. Now, it’s about to be put out to pasture.
