    I can't tell if the picture in the article is a video game screen shot or a picture from a frame of video from a GoPro!

    I've long wanted a GoPro camera. But as it's said, they're in a niche market with a somewhat limited application. I just don't have enough use for a camera to justify my want for one. But I think their IPO will be successful.
     
  4. The GoPro originated from Nick strapping a camera to his wrist....Apples iWatch on the wrist will also sport a camera which makes me think Apple wants a slice of the POV market, Google Glass has a POV camera.
    GoPro to me are that middle camera between iPhone/Android and DSLR, you don't have to be into extreme sports to use this thing.
    I have two GoPros with a third enroute.
