Apparently. Within a few days they (1) decided to buy Tumblr and (2) raised the space Flickr members can use for free to 1 terabyte. Tumblr has never had much appeal for me – when you think about it, it’s not all that dissimilar from a lolcat forum. (Although now and then they do make me smile.) But the second one is good news indeed: up till now using Flickr for backing up your photos only made sense with a paid account. Which admitedly only cost some £15 a year but then, as the Tesco slogan says, every little helps.
