Good, Tiny Camera for $40 - StyleCam Blink

In today's San Francisco Chronicle the SiPix StyleCam Blink got a very good review in the tiny, inexpensive camera category. The review said that "the Blink takes surprisingly good pictures" and "using the Blink is just plain fun, and at $40 it's hard to argue with the price".

According to the review, the drawbacks were that it was hard to get and it doesn't work with Mac's. I would add the funny name as well.
