After berating the FlipCam user base over the last few years, Mark finally succeeded in helping to persuade Cisco to make a decision to cease manufacturing the popular cameras. See the article at the link below:

Can Mark also have the movie function removed from smart phones? After seeing the stills that some clients supply I used to think the ability to take pictures should require a license. Now with Flip and other video I'm certain of it.

My name is not pronounced like Cisco, but like "suuhs-ko". Though if you're a stickler for the Polish pronunciation, it's "Sue sh-koh". Dad Americanized it because so few people could say it properly. He was always being mistaken for Japanese.


I had nothing to do with this flip cam death Cisco pulled a Gordon Gekko... I bet Zacuto is mad though; the new matte boxes and pro eyepiece extension add-ons for the Flip were just arriving from the factory...

Really, I don't understand what Cisco was thinking when they acquired Pure Digital. That they would add routers to all the flip cameras? Wirelessly connect them to the cloud? You would have thought they had some overall strategy in such an acquisition that leveraged a Cisco product or service applied to the cams.


In defense of Cisco, they make an excellent DVR, by the way.

Mark, what will your next target be for deletion from the Matrix?

May I suggest any of the following products:

Boil-in-the-bag rice
Any version of a Star Wars movie that differs from the theatrical release
spam (the email plague, not the lunch meat)
Spam (the lunch meat) - actually, I have never tried it
Farmville

Feel free to chime in.

Oh the nostalgia of the Flip. Just a year ago we were all talking about how our clients were buying these.

[Mike Cohen] "Oh the nostalgia of the Flip. Just a year ago we were all talking about how our clients were buying these."

Nostalgia nothin', I'm really pissed... A friend of mine gave me a Flip now it's been rendered useless by Mark. Maybe I should file against him in small claims court? What if I just invoice you Mark? I accept Paypal.

Now I know how the musician Thomas Dolby feels.
