Cisco to stop supporting FlipShare by end of 2013
Cisco announced this week users who uploaded photos and videos to the company's FlipShare Web Service have 30 days from May 12 to back them up or face having them erased. Cisco discontinued the Flip brand in mid-April among fierce competition from cellphone cameras. Flip has posted a guide online on how users can back up their videos from FlipShare.
Videos uploaded to Facebook and YouTube from the Flip cameras don't have to be backed up as they're unaffected by the deadline. Flip will also continue to provide its FlipShare video software for two and a half years, or until December 31, 2013.
The end of 2013 is also when Cisco will stop providing technical support to the cameras themselves. [via GadgetWise]
