In today's technology ruled world, an abundance of new gadgets are are invented everyday that it's almost impossible to keep up with the new trends. The technology industry is extremely saturated and highly competitive that when a great product is created it quickly penetrates through all the crap that is out there, and quickly rises to the top of the food chain becoming an obsession to the gadget craving community.

The obsession that took over the video camcorder market over the past few years and took the media by storm was the Flip Video by Pure digital. It's crazy that every since the launch of this new simple little toy back in 2007, it holds 13% of the camcorder market. Fast forward 4 generations later and the new HD version of the Flip Mino has been released, raising the bar even higher. The great thing about the new Flip Mino HD is that it's an HD camcorder that fits in your pocket and has a sleek look similar to that of the ipod. It's such a simple device that can be pulled out of your packet in a matter of seconds, and with one click you can capture an instant moment I'm sure most of you bloggers and youtube crazy kids can appreciate. Between its cheap price tag of $230 dollars and the high quality HD resolution you can't go wrong with this purchase. Just like the ipod and sidekick the Flip became a novelty embraced by the celebrity community from the likes of Tom Cruise, David Arquette, Oprah Winfrey, Jon Favreau, Hugh Hefner and Pamela Anderson to name a few. For all you youngsters, hipsters, skaters, bloggers and amateur porn film makers out there I definitely recommend this cool little gadget. See ya on the FLIP side and enjoy!
