This is what a techno lame-o I am. About a month ago, Vivica A. Fox, actress and host of VH1′s “Glam God,” visited my TV show The Fashion Team. She is good-natured and funny, so I asked her if she would speak to the Cool Moms on my new Flip camera. Yes, she said, no problem. Even though she is not a mom, she knows a lot about looking good on the fly, so I asked her about some simple beauty and style tips for the rest of us.
Then I loaded the Flip to the computer and the video was… a small black square. Oops. I had tech support come in (aka, my 14-year-old stepson, Oliver), and we downloaded it again. Here is where I should not have listened to my tech support, or maybe wait until he is out of 9th grade. He said I should delete the original on the camera and I did… uh-oh.
Later, a tech-savvy friend came over and said the problem was I needed to download something to read the file and now I would never get the video picture back because I deleted it.
May I say that when the Flip camera says I can just plug it into my computer and watch, I EXPECT that to actually happen? What’s with the download?
Fortunately, my tech-savvy girlfriend was somehow able to magically find this lost treasure of fashion advice.
Long story short… here’s the quick minute with Vivica A. Fox.
