Let’s see if I can get this straight: Only two years ago, Cisco bought Pure Digital, the company that made the Flip, for $590 million. Then, on Tuesday, Cisco announced that it’s shutting down the whole division and laying off 550 people.
Humans are a rational species. Our instinct is to find reasons, to seek patterns where none may exist. In this case, everybody’s first reaction is: “Oh, it’s because of smartphones. Everybody’s shooting video with iPhones nowadays — nobody’s buying Flip camcorders.” Or, as Gizmodo puts it, “Cisco just axed Flip, yeah, but the blame should beed squarely at the smartphone in your pocket.”
Which sounds logical — until you realize that it’s totally absurd…
