Yahoo Leveraging Flickr to Increase Userbase

phmadore (1391487) writes | 1 hour ago


phmadore (1391487) writes "Yahoo!, that dinosaur of search and AOL-era user interfaces which (relatively) recently acquired tumblr and has owned the once-innovative image sharing site Flickr since 2005, sent me an e-mail today reminding me of a previous e-mail which I had not read in which they state that they are going to disable the ability to login via Facebook or Google account in two weeks. The brief e-mail read:

Hi Flickr User,

In two weeks, Flickr will remove the option to sign in with a Facebook or Google account. Instead, you will need to sign in using a Yahoo account. To create your Yahoo account click "get started" below.

We want to make this transition as easy as possible. If you have any questions, please check out our Help Articles or come see us in the Help Forum. We appreciate your understanding during this transition. Thank you for being a part of the Flickr community!

Though the notice gives no justification for this move, the motivation is obvious enough — people love Gmail and Facebook but are largely ambiguous about Yahoo! which probably results in a weakened userbase in a situation where people are able to fully use their services without having an account. However, a cursory search of the Flickr blog on the topic does not yield obvious results.The move also increases the likelihood that users will then go on to make use of other Yahoo! "services."

I guess it's not enough to undermine open content licensing, now you're going to wall your garden.

What alternative to Flickr are you presently using and what alternatives do you think deserve more attention than this aging also-ran?"

Judge Shoots Down "Bitcoin Isn't Money" Argument in Silk Road Trial

Anonymous Coward writes | 2 hours ago


An anonymous reader writes "The government and legal community may still be arguing over whether bitcoin can be defined as “money.” But the judge presiding over the landmark Silk Road drug case has declared that it’s at least close enough to get you locked up for money laundering. In a ruling released Wednesday, Judge Katherine Forrest denied a motion by Ross Ulbricht, the 30-year-old alleged creator of the Silk Road billion-dollar online drug bazaar, to dismiss all criminal charges against him. Those charges include narcotics trafficking conspiracy, money laundering, and hacking conspiracy charges, as well as a “continuing criminal enterprise” charge that’s better known as the “kingpin” statute used to prosecute criminal gang and cartel leaders."

Police Recording Confirms NYPD Flew At a Drone and Never Feared Crashing

Jason Koebler (3528235) writes | 3 hours ago


Jason Koebler (3528235) writes "An air traffic control recording confirms that a New York Police Department helicopter flew at a drone hovering near the George Washington Bridge earlier this week—not the other way around. What's more, police had no idea what to charge the drone pilots with, and never appeared to fear a crash with the drone.
Two men were arrested Monday on felony reckless endangerment charges after the NYPD said the two flew their drone "very close" to a law enforcement chopper, causing the police helicopter to take evasive maneuvers. Air traffic control recordings suggest that only happened after the chopper pilot decided to chase the drone."
