David Pogue on the Curious Death of The Flip

Weird. Pogue reports that Flip sales remain strong, and they had a great new product ready to unveil yesterday:

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. […]

And the FlipLive was supposed to ship yesterday. April 13. The day after Cisco killed the Flip.
