The 120 min MinoHD is currently only available in brushed metal, but after Nov. 9, you'll be able to personalize your new Mino with an image of your own or one from The Flip's design gallery.
From cell phones to cameras, mommies can hardly get by without their electronics these days. They can save her from getting lost, keeping up with her schedule and maintaining her savvy aura. While they may put a dent in the wallet, there are five wired gadgets that every woman should treat herself to when she welcomes a baby into her world.
Now that the new iPod Nano is here, we're all elated at the fact that it features a larger, 2.2-inch LCD display and a built-in FM radio tuner, but the best part has got to be the included video camera. Being the owner of a Flip Video Camera — which is pocket-sized and very user friendly — I was tempted to see if the video quality on the new Nano is comparable to the Flip. The NewTeeVee crew decided to put both to the test in a side-by-side comparison.
As you'll see, the Flip quality is much better than the Nano, but if you were to compare the Nano to some cell phone video cameras, the Nano would win. Considering the fact that the 8GB Nano (which records up to eight hours of footage) only costs $149, it's not too shabby for a camera that you can easily put in your purse or back pocket — and hey, it even plays music!
Last night at the Teen Choice Awards in LA, funnywoman Ellen DeGeneres made sure to capture every eventful moment with her pocket-size Flip Mino Camcorder. This isn't the first time we've seen her accept an award while filming the entire experience; back in 2006 at the 32nd Annual People's Choice Awards, she brought along her Sony Handycam. And just in case you were wondering, she won "Choice Twit" for being the favorite Twitterer! You can check out more pics of her with her black Flip below.
FlipShare allows you to easily upload videos to websites like YouTube and MySpace, email them to friends, and sets you up with your own Flip Channel, where you can watch videos on the go. Speaking of on the go, there's also a new free FlipShare iPhone app.
I was lucky enough to test out the new FlipShare software and give it a hands-on review, so to see how I got going with the new one-click sharing, just read more
To help capture some Memorial Day weekend festivities, I took the latest camcorder from Pure Digital Technologies — the Flip UltraHD — out for a test drive. Since the first Flip was announced in 2006, these simple-yet-sophisticated cams have not only been the video camera of choice among celebrities, but the general public has fallen in love with them as well (with sales skyrocketing after Oprah sang its praises).
Why is the UltraHD getting so much attention? Unlike its predecessor, the MinoHD that also records video in high-def, the UltraHD ($200) can capture up to 120 minutes of HD video footage with its 8GB of built-in memory — unlike the MinoHD, which is priced at $230 and only holds up to 60 minutes of video. The UltraHD also comes with a bigger, brighter antiglare LCD screen and an HDMI connector output.

Now I can't quite place what caught her attention at LAX (or at least what's worthy of some camera-time), but I will say this — Zac seems just about as thrilled about the camera as he is about Twitter and other social networking sites!
With up to two hours of recording time on the new Flip UltraHD, Vanessa's capturing fun can last for 120 minutes — and that's even high-def quality. Let's just hope she uses this great gizmo for something else than just capturing the paparazzi.
With Mother's Day right around the corner, you may be looking for some ways to spoil mommy dearest. Now I can't say these are the most inexpensive options, but they will make a gadget girl drool and are guaranteed to grab the attention of a geeky guy.
