Camcorder Questions

I don't own a video camera, and have never seen the need for one. When I travel I'm quite content with capturing what I see on my digital camera. And yet today, when I was checking out what was new on Amazon, I saw an ad for the new Flip Video Camcorders. They're portable, user friendly and are supposed to be of high quality. I was also amazed at how much they've dropped in price too.

So I'm curious, does anyone else have a camcorder, and specifically a Flip, and if so, do you get much use out of it? Behind the cut are a few questions about camcorders generally and about the Flip specifically...
