Flickr, the photo-sharing web site, has been bought up by Yahoo!, the venerable but ailing content and web services provider.
In what looks like a bold attempt to steal a march on its competitors – Instagram, Google, Facebook et al – it seems they’ve announced (as discussed on the Tech Crunch web site) that they are offering a full terabyte of data storage, free, to its users.
This sounds excellent, and in all respects but one – as discussed in Roy’s recent, cautionary blog posting “A Black Day For Photography” – it probably is. But a terabyte? Seems a little excessive!
It seems that not everyone is happy, though – “Pro” users are facing a price hike.
Yahoo! giveth and Yahoo! taketh away.
