Yahoo buys image recognition firm IQ Engines to reorganize Flickr

DNP Yahoo buys image recognition startup IQ Engines

Flickr is a killer resource for photographers of all stripes, but navigating through its massive photo catalog is far from elegant. Hopefully, Yahoo’s purchase of IQ Engines can change that. According to the image recognition startup’s website, IQ will be applying its skills to improving photo organization and search functionality to the online photo repository. Maybe its first order of business will be arranging all of Yahoo’s new logos.

Microsoft drops Facebook and Flickr photo integration from Windows 8.1, recommends official apps

Photoswin81_640_large

One of the selling points of Windows Phone is the tight social integration and ability to pull photos from Facebook into the built-in photo application. Microsoft mimicked this same functionality in Windows 8, but it appears the company is removing some of it for Windows 8.1. Although the photos app in Windows 8.1 has been improved with editing functionality, the app has dropped Facebook and Flickr integration alongside the removal of support for images on network storage.

In a posting to Microsoft’s community forums, a spokesperson explains that the software maker introduced the Facebook and Flickr integration originally in Windows 8 as very few apps would initially be available. “Now there are many apps in the store that offer ways to…

Yahoo revitalizes Flickr with huge images, sharing, and a terabyte of free space (hands-on)

Flickrnewverge_large

Yahoo has just taken the wraps off a major update to Flickr, it’s long-suffering photo service, and we just sat down to put the revamped service through its paces to see how it has improved — and whether or not it’ll be enough to keep up with the likes of Facebook and Google+. While it’s a massive visual improvement, it’s still works much like the Flickr of old, for better or for worse. But for a visual site like Flickr, those changes make for a huge upgrade over what users experienced before.


For starters, Flickr made it a priority to remove the massive amounts of whitespace, text, and links that covered up its page, and it makes all the difference. You’re now presented with a stream of photos from your contacts with minimal…

Yahoo rumors ahead of Monday’s event include $1.1 billion Tumblr buy, Flickr updates

Earlier today, Yahoo sent press invites to a “product-related” event in New York City Monday afternoon and there are already two separate rumors about the company’s plans. The first, from Bloomberg, concerns the event specifically and cites a “person familiar with the matter” reporting we’ll hear about new updates for Yahoo’s once-mighty Flickr photo service. The second is from AllThingsD, which has upgraded rumors of a Tumblr purchase from possible to possibly imminent, saying the company’s board will meet to decide whether it will make a $ 1.1 billion all-cash offer for the site. That announcement is also penciled in for the 20th, but whatever actually goes down you can be sure we’ll have the details as they’re unveiled at 4:30PM ET.

Flickr iOS app adds hashtags as it chases Instagram and Twitter

Dsc08149_large

Flickr has pushed the latest update to its revamped iPhone app, and the heading feature is a tweak to an existing one from the web: according to the changelog, tags are now hashtags, and can be tapped straight below each photo. While Flickr was among of the first web services to made popular tags as an arranging and search system, it appears Yahoo felt that tradition wasn’t enough for the photo-sharing service to keep rate; the change is in line with the Flickr app’s adoption of retro filters and @-sign usernames. The word “hashtag” hasn’t reached the main Flickr internet site itself, however, and existing tags from the web don’t reveal up as tappable hashtags in the app.

By taking on the language of the app-driven mobile web, the Flickr app …

While Flickr was one of of the first web services to popularize tags as a sorting and search mechanism, it seems Yahoo felt that legacy wasn’t enough for the photo-sharing service to keep pace; the change is in line with the Flickr app’s adoption of retro filters and @-symbol usernames. The word “hashtag” hasn’t extended to the main Flickr website itself, though, and existing tags from the web don’t show up as tappable hashtags in the app.

Samsung Smart Tango Corner Clean robotic vacuum hits Flickr ahead of CES launch

Samsung Smart Tango Corner Clean robotic vacuum appears on Flickr ahead of CES launch

There’s no doubt that Samsung’s holding its juiciest bits for the stage in Vegas, however the company has been letting a couple of items slip on by, with an update to its robot vacuum line representing the most recent pre-CES tease. The Smart Tango Corner Clean preserves a typical round design, however consists of the “globe’s really first pop-out brush,” which makes it possible for the bot to whip debris out of edges and otherwise unattainable spots along its mapped-out course. On the navigation front, the new cleaner appears to include Samsung’s camera-equipped Visionary Mapping System, with a front-mounted lens. There’s also a built-in LCD for shows and error code readouts, in addition to a handful of controls on the top and a standard removable dust bin in the back. There’s no hint of prices or availability– or even a design number to mention– but if you’re in the marketplace for an autonomous vac, you might as well hold out on your purchase for another week.

There’s no doubt that Samsung’s holding its juiciest bits for the stage in Vegas, but the company has been letting a few items slip on by, with an update to its robotic vacuum line representing the latest pre-CES tease. The Smart Tango Corner Clean maintains a traditional circular design, but includes the “world’s very first pop-out brush,” which enables the bot to whip debris out of corners and otherwise inaccessible spots along its mapped-out path. On the navigation front, the new cleaner appears to include Samsung’s camera-equipped Visionary Mapping System, with a front-mounted lens. There’s also a built-in LCD for programming and error code readouts, along with a handful of controls on the top and a standard removable dust bin in the rear. There’s no hint of pricing or availability — or even a model number to speak of — but if you’re in the market for an autonomous vac, you might as well hold out on your purchase for one more week.
