Remember Flip, the diminutive digital camcorder whose short life was snuffed out by a combination of mismanagement and the advent of smartphones that could record higher-quality HD video? The cameras are still six feet under, and as of this week, so is the companion FlipShare service.

Are they planning on ever supporting Snow Leopard?
