…It’s Things Thursday: Flip Video?

Flip Video

The Flip Video is to the camcorder what the Eee PC is to the laptop: A stripped down, easy to use, and surprisingly functional version of its big brother.

Sporting a VGA quality sensor (read: YouTube ready) and 2GB of built-in memory, there are no tapes or memory cards required, and it connects to your computer with a built-in USB arm.

One-touch recording and software that allows you to easily edit and share videos means that it’s designed to capture your day to day in a way that no camera has done before, and the size makes it easy to carry around with you wherever you go.

It’s time to Flip.

Splashup Editor

Basically a free, online version of Photoshop, I was instantly impressed by how well Splashup works.

Open the editor, and it feels like a desktop application. Response is quick, it has a proper menu, and it integrates with your computer like it’s supposed to.

One of the best features of Splashup is the ability to import images directly from flickr, Facebook, Picasa, the web, and your computer, With a few simple clicks, you can import a photo, make the necessary edits, and then save/export the photo back into your site of choice.

With the ability to edit multiple images at once, pixel-level control, layers of depth, and more, there’s not much that you’ll miss if you’re stuck in an online editing world.
