Yahoo reboots Flickr, offers 1 terabyte of storageMay 20, 2013 @ 4:34 pm
NEW YORK (AP) - Fresh on the heels of its $1.1 billion acquisition of Tumblr, Yahoo says it is rebooting its languishing photo-sharing site Flickr with plans to make it "awesome" again.
Yahoo Inc. said at an event in New York City's Times Square on Monday that it is now offering users 1 terabyte of online storage for free. One terabyte is 1,024 gigabytes _ enough to store more than 500,000 images at a resolution common to most smartphones.
Yahoo has redesigned the Flickr website to emphasize photos rather than text or white space, as was the case previously. Photos are bigger and shared in full resolution rather than compressed into a lower quality.
Flickr also launched a new Android app to follow the December unveiling of a new iPhone app.
