Default Help me chose an idiot-proof digicam -- like the Flip, but for taking still pictures

I don't care about the minutiae of photo cameras. I want to find a digital camera that most closely resembles the Flip video camera... or the old point-and-shoot film cameras of yesteryear.

The most idiot-proof camera in history: the one that's built into your cellphone.

Proof: the sheer number of photos taken by idiots with their cellphones.

You need a camera with a good auto mode. But what is you budget?
