• A Flip Video remote? On the FCC website? What?

    A strange Flip Video remote has been found on the FCC website, whose existence alone seems to indicate Flip Video has something new coming out. I mean, you don’t really need a remote control for a pocket camcorder, right? However, you do need a remote for, say, a set-top box. Read More

  • Unlike Us, CrunchGear Has Nothing Bad To Say About The Flip Mino

In fact, he has nothing to say about it at all. That’s because Flip never delivered a promised test Mino to him, either before or after the embargo. The company flooded the blogs and news outlets with them a week ago, and we’re hearing reports that club go’ers in Los Angeles (at least the good looking ones) are being handed them for free. Almost everyone who wants one has a Flip Mino, and most of these people have written glowing reviews that completely ignore the fact that the Mino competes with digital cameras, not camcorders. Did the fact that we’ve been harsh on the Flip in the past have something to do with this? CrunchGear did receive a delivery from Flip that included the press release, an empty box and a return address form. But no Flip.

  • The Flip v. My Cheap Canon Camera: Flip Loses Across The Board

    The Flip Mino, the third version of the popular Flip video camera, launched today to a torrent of well orchestrated press coverage. We’ve been a little harsh on the Flip in the past, so I was pleased when they reached out to us under embargo to write about the new launch. The only problem was, they wouldn’t send a test unit until after the embargo was over. We declined. But I… Read More

  • Amazon's head of consumer electronics names 'excellent' convergence devices

  • Flip Video: Camcorder to YouTube, Automagically

    We’ve seen disposable or limited use camcorders before, but Pure Digital, the workhouse behind the el cheapo plastic video recorders, is promising us something new with its Flip Video cams. While the prices are dropping and the resolutions rising on HD camcorders, these guys are going the other way, rolling out a bare-bones SD cam with TV-out features and software that allows for easy… Read More
