Givit: FlipShare Deadline Approaches
Do you have a Flip video camera? Storing all of your videos on FlipShare and want to move them elsewhere for safety? San Diego-based Givit has one word for you: hurry. Givit, which inked a deal last month to help users migrate their videos from FlipShare over to its own, video sharing and storage service, says that--despite Cisco's plans to shut down FlipShare until December 31, 2013--a change coming to FlipShare on tax day will likely result in stored videos being deleted much earlier. Givit explains that Cisco will be expiring out videos stored on the service 30 days after they are first shared. Cisco said March 15th that it would be shutting down FlipShare, as it shuts down its Flip video division.
