Whoa !! Flickr was clearly a Google animal and they missed the bus. Yahoo announced that it bought Flickr, few hours back. With the announcement of Yahoo 360, it was expected that Yahoo might acquire few small players, whose application, Yahoo might integrate into blogging/social networking utility, Yahoo 360.
Flickr was one of those software applications that was clearly an offshoot in this clumsily imitative internet world. It was certainly a killer app for photo blogs just like delicious was for bookmarks. There were talks on the blogosphere that Google might just go for Flickr.
With Flickr on the Yahoo side, the Googleplex would have been alarmed this rainy sunday to gear up with their next best release of blogger tightly integrated with Picasa. It’s going to be long nights ahead for those geeks. Good Luck !!
