I'm still a very active Flickr user and I still love it. I think it's successful as a social platform as there are lots of ways to meet friends and interact with them. But I have noticed a lot of my friends are disappearing and new images I'm interested in are becoming a lot rarer. So something is happening, though I'm not sure what. Maybe it's what the article talked about: not enough localization or emphasis on mobile.

I remember the whole Yahoo ID debacle, though. Users were livid, including me. But on the whole it was a small tempest in a teapot.

1. Time Warner Cable Kills the Roadrunner - And Makes Several Speed and Price Changes. May 16, 2012, 01:29 MeanJim
Wow, I can't believe my local cable co. is now faster and cheaper than TWC. They just bumped the standard service up to 12Mbps from 10Mbps, which is $49/month. I've seen ads saying they offer speeds up to 50Mbps, but no mention of price. The service has been shit lately though, probably due to the upgrade. The cable goes down during random times of the day (even during primetime hours), sometimes just for a minute or two and sometimes hours.

I guess I can thank AT&T. Until they began offering U-verse here, I only had 4Mbps down and 256Kbps up. Last time I checked, AT&T's fastest offering was 18Mbps in my area.
