Do any of you have a Flip? My son had a school project to complete, and he chose to film his project on Moses and the Ten Commandments (private school obviously) on his mom's Flip camcorder.

Classic line, Ted.) It is odd to see Cisco simply fold this unit up, rather than spin it off, no? $590 million down the drain. Wow.
