Yahoo耍流氓?!

Friday Night Tribute to Flickr!
by dsevilla

人实在是一种奇怪的动物.在没有牵扯到自己的时候可以轻松地评价别人,一旦和自己相关却实在没法冷静下来.

我就是这样奇怪的动物.在今天之前,我一直觉得Yahoo收购了Flickr之后一直没有做好它的整合工作.Flickr和Yahoo在我的感觉中是不同的两家公司.可是几分钟前我收到了邮件说Flickr将要取消原来的帐号登陆方式,全部改为Yahoo!ID的登陆方式.我意识到Yahoo终于出手了.

Dear Old Skool Account-Holding Flickr Member,

On March 15th we’ll be discontinuing the old email-based
Flickr sign in system.  From that point on, everyone will
have to use a Yahoo! ID to sign in to Flickr.

We’re making this change now to simplify the sign in
process in advance of several large projects launching this
year, but some Flickr features and tools already require
Yahoo! IDs for sign in — like the mobile site at
m.flickr.com or the new Yahoo! Go program for mobiles,
available at: http://go.yahoo.com.

95% of your fellow Flickrites already use this system and
their experience is just the same as yours is now, except
they sign in on a different page.  It’s easy to switch: it
takes about a minute if you already have a Yahoo! ID and
about five minutes if you don’t.

You can make the switch at any time in the next few months,
from today till the 15th. (After that day, you’ll be
required to merge before you continue using your account.)
To switch, start at this page:

http://flickr.com/account/associate/

Nothing else on your account or experience of Flickr
changes: you can continue to have your FlickrMail and
notifications sent to any email address at any domain and
your screenname will remain the same.

Complete details and answers to most common questions are
available here:

http://flickr.com/help/signin/

Thanks for your patience and understanding – and even
bigger thanks for your continued support of Flickr: if
you’re reading this, you’ve been around for a while and
that means a lot to us!

Warmest regards,

– The Flickreenos

在3月15号之前完成转换…我不是没有Yahoo!ID,只是我实在不愿意把帐号关联起来.理由?为什么需要关联起来呢? Zola在Blog里说:

Yahoo不想办法支持OPENID让自己各个产品的用户互联互通,不想着为网民提供更方便的服务,居然出一个把Flickr的帐号合并到Yahoo! ID的下策,这不是给人添麻烦么?这不是人家换登录名字换密码用Yahoo!ID登录么?

我觉得要让Yahoo支持OpenID这个可能性微乎极微,但是我同意合并帐号是下策.我想通过内容方面的整合比在用户层面的整合要有效些?比如Yahoo自己的相册,图片搜索…这些产品目前还是平行于Flickr的不是么?

Zola还说:

通过合并Flickr 的 ID到Yahoo!ID的好外是显而易见的,可以让数量巨大的Flickr用户“顺便试用”Yahoo的其它服务,可是Yahoo的其它产品实在不敢恭 维,我就没听说过他们有一个够酷好用的服务。历史上Yahoo还出卖过用户,把某中国用户的邮箱内容提供给中国警方导致一个中国记者入狱十年,导致很多中 国人发动抵制Yahoo,Yahoo还收购中国著名的流氓软件3721,收购后改头换面成“yahoo助手“继续当流氓。这样的Yahoo看起来就像是一 个为了钱什么都做的无良商贩。

虽然Zola把雅虎的流氓算到了Yahoo头上,不过怎么说呢,谁能保证Yahoo可以挺直腰板说雅虎的事情和我完全没有关系呢?

好吧,我还有一个半月可以用我的老帐号登陆Flickr.好吧,还好我们还有Yupoo!

One thought on “Yahoo耍流氓?!

  1. 因为我先有yahoo帐户后用flickr,所以一直用yahoo帐户登陆,没有收到这个东西.不过看完发现yahoo还真是贱!!

    如果上面引用的内容属实的话,那么雅虎显然是会污辱”贱”这个字了,所以我用沉默对抗

    今天来是想说我决定回去http://angelapple.iblog.com/写了,面对自己的问题,呵呵

    BTW,抽屉兄你blog界面做的真好看啊
