Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "A war between two of the major conglomerates will always have casualties, and unfortunately for us, this time we are the casualties. We aren't yet at a state where it is impossible to use Google services on Microsoft platforms, but we are moving towards a stricter ecosystem world where we might see Googlers/Gmail users on one side and Bingers/Outlook users on the other. We can only hope for the sake of technologies future and for the sake of innovation that the two companies can learn to work together in an ever expanding world of data." We can hope so, but we're talking large companies, and large companies do not care about users. Never have, never will.

I already gave up on Picasa and went back to host my pictures on my own web site, when they started nagging private albums had to be made public because of Google+.


They did? Funny, because when they announced that, the only difference I saw was that albums *defaulted* to public. So now I have to manually select private for a new album, but otherwise it's pretty much the same. I still regularly upload albums that nobody can see except me, and some that only those that I specify can see.

It happened when I got a Google+ invite, right at the beginning.

The outcome of such suggestion was that I deleted all my Picasa albums and am yet to have a Google+ account.
