It never fails

I've only had the flip for a couple days and I'm already hit by buyer's remorse. Not because of the product, but I just got an email from Connie about the price dropping on Amazon. I purchased the black ultra for $142 and the white one's now selling for $135. Feh. I called Amazon's customer service line and got the entirely predictable response that I wasn't eligable for a price correction because mine was back and the one they're selling for cheaper is white. Who ever would have thought that color preference would have ended up costing me an additional $7.

I guess I could always stomp the one I have and return it claiming it was defective. That would net me free return shipping and then I could repurchase the white one and pocket $7. That's just a weee bit too extreme though. Oh well. I guess there's nothing I can do but live with it.

On a sidenote, the uploaded video to google was a lot more low-res than the one I've got on my desktop. It might have something to do with the conversion process it's put through as it uploads. At the moment, I can't think of anything I can do to address that, but if anyone out there has any ideas, let me know. Google video still seems to be the best option, even with the quality drop.
