Commentary by Stephen Downes

It's definitely worth looking at the Flip video camera. Capturing something like 13 percent of the video recording market in the first year, the Flip camera is a phenomenon. But I'm not sure these are the seven points I would pick to highlight about the Flip. How many ways can you say "by making it easier it increases the risks," anyways? (Answer: 4. Items 4 through 7.) The really important points? Flip cams save files directly as .avi files, making them instantly usable. And another: Flip cameras carry their software with them, ending the separation between device and device driver (you can actually update the driver on the device). Also, because the Flip can be operated in hands-free mode, it is much more mobile (and stealth).
