Flip Video

I got a Flip Video Ultra Series camcorder today. Initially, I was an unhappy girl because the product didn't work. I could make videos, but I couldn't do anything else, like put it on my computer, edit. You know... all the stuff I GOT the device for. A few minutes after throwing up my hands in disgust and telling Ed to "fix it," I went to the company's Web site and discovered the product needed some new firmware, whatever that is. Ed and I (mainly Ed) installed the firmware. Then, it worked. Hooray!

For your viewing (dis)pleasure, I present the following:

The full-length video Ed took while I was trying to figure out what was wrong (I think he just wanted to take a video of me computing)...

...and the edited version...

Now, both are perfectly fine videos, but sometimes it's nice to get to the heart of the matter and be done with it.

Merry Christmas, happy birthday, happy anniversary (maybe there's some cotton in the carrying case it came with) to me.

You edited out Fox. Poor Fox. :)

That was pretty much Ed's reaction, too. :)
