Comments on Cisco killed the Flip camera and other surprisesA SearchCIO-Midmarket.com blog2013-04-02T15:16:26Zhttp://itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/cio/cisco-killed-the-flip-camera-and-other-surprises/feed/atom/By: LLeeLLeehttp://1651837123#comment-2482011-04-29T16:45:17Z2011-04-29T16:45:17ZI certainly agree with your post — and the Cisco side caught me by surprise as well. Rather than just ‘kill’ the product, why not find a buyer, as you mention?
Is there another issue behind the death of the Flip? Flip seems more robust in terms of video recording than smartphones/cells …
Why the real reason for the ‘kill’? Infringement somewhere, anywhere?
In this economy, some money as spin-off/sell-off, is much better than no money ..

I missed the whole owned by Cisco thing too.
I think that trying to compare the Flip with a smart phone is not a good comparison, as the capabilities and quality are different.
Think that your suggestion for a spin off was a much better idea than killing it.
They had better focus on the enterprise, because if I ever associate them with another consumer product, I will run the other way.
