Flip cameras to go out of production

Parent company Cisco moves to shut down production of popular portable video cameras.

    The Flip video camera has become one of most successful portable devices of the last few years.

    However, Cisco, the US technology company which bought Flip's manufacturer just two years ago, is shutting down production at the camera maker.

    Analysts say the move may be a response to a growing challenge from video-capable smartphones, as well as internal pressures within Cisco to increase profitability.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
