Flagrant Disregard (home of Flickr Toys) is asking, is Flickr ready to leave beta?
In my opinion, no. It is nice, but it doesn’t have enough features, or enough uptime.
I don’t see why I should have to vote for one of the feature requests listed on the page – many of them are needed. Flickr is owned by Yahoo! now, but I’m not seeing much innovation… a lot more could be done to improve and add features without ruining the user experience. Rather like the problem with Google’s ownership of Blogger – not enough evidence of development and improvement.
Well, we ordered the TomTom 910 on Friday, from Expansys… their website is indicating that it should be available within 7 days, so hopefully by the time I get back from my trip to Las Vegas (the week after next) I’ll be all satnav’ed up. Don’t know whether there will be a waiting list, though. Fingers crossed.
I was thinking about this last night, and realised that I’ll now have something to store and play the Radio 4 podcasts on – so even if I’m not driving in the evening, I’ll be able to listen to The Now Show, or In Our Time. Plus, of course, if I carry it everywhere with me, the satnav aspect should enable me to help taxi drivers who don’t know their way to my client sites – for example the guy in Birmingham who wanted me to tell him how to get from my hotel to the office the other day…
