Flipped Over Flip

You might think this is a post about Flip Wilson (a superb comedian, whose 1970s TV variety show I watched regularly), but it is not.

In fact, I’ve flipped over the Flip, a cell phone-sized video camera with built-in USB, which deposits videos on Macs and also enables sharing and uploading to YouTube and other video sites. The age of the video snapshot is here. This efficient little camera comes with either 30-minute or 60-minute capacity.

The Flip is great for capturing those candid moments everyone dreads, but it also has other uses, as you might imagine.
