Default The Amazing Flip Feature We'll Never See

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://pogue.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/04/14/the-tragic-death-of-the-flip/' target='_blank'>http://pogue.blogs.nytimes.com/2011...th-of-the-flip/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"But there's a second part of the tragedy, too, something that nobody knows. That new Flip that the product manager showed me was astonishing. It was called FlipLive, and it added one powerful new feature to the standard Flip: live broadcasting to the Internet. That is, when you're in a Wi-Fi hot spot, the entire world can see what you're filming. You can post a link to Twitter or Facebook, or send an e-mail link to friends. Anyone who clicks the link can see what you're seeing, in real time-thousands of people at once."</em></p><p>Oh Flip, <a href="http://www.digitalhomethoughts.com/news/show/107637/cisco-kills-the-flip-camera.html" target="_blank">we hardly knew ye</a>. The feature that David Pogue describes above would have been insanely cool to have on a pocket camera - and now we'll never see it...at least until someone else (Sony, Kodak, etc.) develops the same feature into their cameras.</p>
