Yahoo or Google buyout of Flickr

business2blog: Flickr, Yahoo Deal Rumored. Back in December 2004, I made a prediction that Ludicorp would be bought out by Google -- it was an easy and obvious prediction to make. But since Google has Picasa, it turns out Yahoo wants Flickr more and that the deal is more imminent than the timeline I predicted. Nothing is yet set in stone, but I see the rumors flouted about, even at slashdot. Well, once the service is bought out, time can only tell if Yahoo will use it to the fullest potential and develop a truly magnificent piece of software all of us can use daily -- or drive it to the ground as AOL has done for so many of its services that it bought.
