Next Google acquisition: Flickr + Picasa 2.0 = Fotoogle
The theory runs like this:
- It would bridge the gap between off and online photos
- It would enrich the Google image DB
- Flickr has many G Friendly features and characteristics
Jeremy Zawodny was not so full of joy with the notion:
I think Google has a good track record in this department so far (namely Picasa and Blogger), but I'd just hate to see a great service like Flickr get screwed up before its time.
What do you think? Is it a sensible/credible move?
It does appear to make sense to me, for all of the reasons given in the posts referenced above and more - Flickr is cool... and it fits neatly with Googles Blogger.com
