For the YouTube generation, this is an amazing little camcorder that fits easily into your pocket. About the size of a cell phone, it packs an amazing amount of digital punch. You can record up to 60 minutes of high-quality video, then connect the camcorder to the computer using the flip-out USB arm. The Flip then launches its own software that allows you to view videos, edit them, snap still photos from the videos, and even combine videos to make movies. These movies can then be uploaded to YouTube, Myspace, and AOL Video, or sent to friends. This is an amazing "toy" for tweens, teens, and even adults.
