Flip Ultra Gift Giving Guide, Mac Edition

Based on all of the rave reviews, I gave my mom a Flip Ultra video camera for her birthday last week. She’s generally been very happy with it, but as it turns out it wasn’t as one-click, no fuss easy as many of the reviews indicate. Not quite so easy in this case… Any time […]
