Camcorders may seem outmoded now that more mobile phones shoot video, but Flip is working hard to keep its offerings au courant. Case in point: The new MinoHD, a 4-ounce high-definition camcorder that can be customized using an online pattern generator. It has two hours of recording time (twice as much as its predecessor), an HDMI output for watching videos on HDTVs, and a 2-inch display (slightly larger than the original Flip's). Another plus: Flip's editing software now includes one-click uploads to Facebook and YouTube.
