Sampson Go Mic and FlipPal™ Story Scans Are A Family Match Made In Heaven


What’s the use of recording your family photo’s history if your recording isn’t top notch? In my book, I want the best, and I’ve found that the good people at FlipPal ™ now have a premier portable USB device that clips right on your MAC or PC.

Samson Go Mic portable USB microphone Here’s what it says on the FlipPal site about this recording device.

Samson Go Mic


The Samson Go Mic is perfect for recording voice for StoryScans talking images, retaining the full fidelity of the speaker and reducing background noise. It records impeccable CD quality audio. Superior to the microphone that is built into laptop, phone, or tablet that is prone to hum, hiss, and tinny sound. Connect to your PC or Mac using USB – no drivers required.

The Flip-Pal mobile scanner is at its lowest price ever. Have Santa order one today!


Dear Santa:
Why I want a Flip-Pal® mobile scanner for Christmas
I’ve been good all year, really I have.  I’ve really, really wanted a Flip-Pal mobile scanner and here is what I’ll use it for:

  • Preserving our family photos before disaster strikes so they are protected against harm and I have a digital image to rely on in case I need it.
  • Creating a variety of gifts using scanned photos. Stuff like calendars, photo books, tote bags and even ceramic tiles (yes,  I can picture Grandma on my kitchen back-splash!).
  • Writing about uncle John’s service in the military and scanning his medals and Army patches. I can never say “thank you” enough, but a book about him is a good start.
  • Starting an index project for my genealogy society by scanning documents and then getting a group together to build a searchable database. Then we can share it with other genealogists.

I know I’ll get a lot of use out of it so, pretty please, make my Christmas wish come true?

Flip-Pal Software 2 Update to version 2.0.0 — NEW as of March 20, 2013

This morning was the day to update my Flip-Pal software to the new version 2.0.0 and it couldn’t have been easier. My computer doesn’t happen to have a SD memory card slot, but I do have a card reader, so I was able to use that to get the latest version. Read below to see what’s new in the software:

  • Flip-Pal Software 2 comes with a new, intuitive interface with web-like navigation.
  • When customers use the EasyStitch software to “stitch” scans of large originals, they will appreciate that the scans to be stitched, as well as the final stitched images, are larger and easier to view.
  • Scans can easily be shared and uploaded to the web—and the new “Community” page allows users to connect with other Flip-Pal mobile scanner owners, partners, videos and more.
  • Users can easily get the latest changes in Flip-Pal tools and software with a single button.

Once the new file was downloaded to my desktop, I was able to click on it, choose RUN and then upload it to my chosen file location which was my SD card in the reader. That updated the software, and now when I insert the SD card into my Flip-Pal mobile scanner it will be all up to date. (Just for good measure, I put in new AA batteries too). If you don’t already have a Flip-Pal mobile scanner, this live link will take you to the site where you can purchase one. Or, click on the logo at the top of this article.
