Samsung has a vision for a "workplace of the future" - and it includes a giant, rotating, digital whiteboard that can screen mirror your phone and have four people writing on it at the same time.

It doesn't matter how big or comfy your bed is, there's just something undeniably satisfying about falling asleep on the couch in your living room. So Unikia created a better couch pillow, with a two-piece Flip! cushion that should let you nap comfortably and not have to worry about waking up to a sore neck or joints.
Portable document scanners have existed for years, and you can even get models as small as a business card. The catch, however, is that you need to physically move the scanner across a document yourself, which often leads to mixed results. And that's why Doxie's new Flip is so wonderful; it's basically a tiny flatbed scanner (about the size of a tablet) that doesn't require you to move it at all.
Remember Rohan Nowell? He was the lunatic guy who decided it would be a good idea one day to skateboard the 85km from Sydney to Wollongong, NSW by himself, tweeting and sharing the journey on social media the whole way. We covered him at the time and applauded his spirit. Now he finally has a bit of video of the trip!
The Olympus LS-20M is a handheld HD video camera in the line of the deceased Flip.
When Cisco killed the Flip this week, they weren't just killing the name - they were killing a camcorder which was due to be announced the day after they canned it. The New York Times says the camcorder, called FlipLive, was capable of streaming video live to Twitter, Facebook or sending an email link to the video-cloud in realtime, over Wi-Fi. Sounds darn impressive, even if there are many apps that can do that already.
Overnight, Cisco quietly took a knife to the throat of its Flip Video business, killing off a company they paid $US590 million for just two years ago. But Cisco isn't the first company to spend a lot of money taking over a company only to get rid of it later. Here are our five favourites, including the Flip.
Today, we pay our respects to an old, departed, obsolete, redundant friend. Here lie the remains of Flip, a product nobody needed anymore or cared about. So, its creator decided to destroy it. Now let us bow our heads. Phew!
You can write your own tongue joke for this one: ageing rock dinosaur group KISS has added a KISS-branded Flip HD to its tour merchandise as it subjects the USA to just one more round of "Rock And Roll All Night" and "Detroit Rock City". At $US199, that's a lot more than the typical $US150 price for the Flip, but any suggestions that you could get much the same effect by printing some cheap knock-off stickers would probably not be well received by the KISS faithful. We look forward to the inevitable KISS Kinect.
The best camera is the one you have with you, so I carry a very nice point-and-shoot everywhere. Nothing else has been good enough. But the iPhone 4 is.
