What do you do after you've created a huge product, sold it, and watched it be scuttled away? If you're Jonathan Kaplan, who created the Flip cameras that Cisco bought and then shut down last month, you move into grilled cheese.
Cisco killed off the Flip brand earlier this week, but it turns out they did so a mere day before they were supposed to unveil a brand new model: the FlipLive, a live-streaming handheld video camera.
The smartphone triumphs and the Flip camera falls to its peril. That's more or less the story behind today's announcement by Cisco that the affordable Flip cameras will no longer be produced.
