Yahoo Battles YouTube But Forgets to Bring Flickr

TechCrunch » Blog Archive » Yahoo Battles YouTube, But Forgets to Bring Flickr
"Yahoo Video is targeting YouTube by allowing user-generated videos on the site. The biggest disappointment? The product is not being integrated (yet) into Flickr."

Flickr is a wonderful web service and is very user friendly. Personally I think Yahoo's decision not to integrate Yahoo Video into Flickr is a good one. YouTube has some good features but it's quite a different beast to Flickr. Flickr is more classy also Flickr doesn't bombard you random 'junk' from other people like YouTube does.

Maybe over time a video option within Flickr would be a useful feature but I'd prefer for Yahoo not to lose the photo focus that Flickr has.
