Iconic Moments: Britney Spears performing, “I’m a Slave 4 U,” with a snake draped around her neck at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards. Fifteen years later, Spears admitted that her iconic performance with the live python was “dumb.“
#DearMuslims spread support for Muslims after NYC bombing — until it was stolen.
Terrell J. Star, a political correspondent at Fusion, launched #DearMuslims on Twitter to provide a stream of support for Muslims who are likely to face systemic racial profiling and Islamophobia after the bombs in NYC and NJ.
Starr offered tips to Muslims on how to safely handle racial profiling from police officers like making sure they have an ID at all times, syncing their photos to the cloud and more. And then came the disgusting response.
Flickr, Now a Place Where All of Your Photos and Videos Can Live
By Tim A.
Miller, Head of Engineering, Flickr
At Flickr, we’ve dreamed of creating a space
where you can store and manage a lifetime’s worth of memories - imagine having
half a million photos in one place! We’ve redesigned Flickr and now you can
easily and effectivelyupload, view, organize, edit and share your
lifetime of photos and videos across desktop and mobile. Today, we’re
introducing a number of exciting tools, as well as a complete refresh to our
mobile apps, that will help you take advantage of the 1,000 GB of free space we
gave you in 2013.
Uploadrs: Tap into what feels like unlimited
storage with our new Uploadr for Mac and Windows. You can finally upload as
many as half a million photos that would otherwise be scattered across your
laptop, desktop, an external hard drive, iPhoto and more. Then, turn on
Auto-Uploadr on your mobile device and free up valuable space on your phone.
We’ll automatically sync the photos and videos across your devices as well as
any new ones you capture. Don’t worry, anything uploaded will be marked private
until you choose to share it and we’ll take care of any doubles.
New Camera Roll in the Cloud:View your
photos, videos and albums from anywhere - web or mobile - then browse through
thousands of photos in seconds, easily navigating your entire catalog by date
or by using the dynamic Magic View. Built with our advanced image recognition
technology, the new Magic View will identify the content of your photos and
organize them across more than 60 categories, such as landscapes, animals,
screenshots, panoramas, black and white, symmetrical, and more. We’ve also made
sharing your own photos and videos easier than ever. Simply swipe to select as
few or as many as you’d like, click “Share” and then you can grab the link,
share via email, Instagram, Facebook and more. If you want to download
thousands of photos and videos at once, we’ve got you covered. For the first
time, download them in zip format to share however you’d like.

New Search Experience:We’re also using our advanced image
recognition technology to bring you innovative image search that is smarter,
easier and faster than ever. Find photos of mountains or redwood trees in a
flash! Filter images by color, size and orientation – discover some spectacular panoramic shots of the sky with blue and
magenta hues or beautiful, minimalist, black and white images of cities. Next,
look for photos of the London Eye to find the giant Ferris wheel and you’ll no
longer find countless photos of eyes taken in London. Instead, our new advanced
search algorithms understand your intent and bring you higher quality results
time after time. Say you’re looking for a photo from your New Year’s Eve party
- search by holiday, month, year or location. Now, in no time, you’ll uncover
those special moments that you thought would be trapped in the archives
Discover through search
Mobile Apps:We’ve made the new Flickr consistent
across devices and platforms so that you can enjoy the same amazing experience
whether you’re looking at a lifetime of images or videos on iPhone, iPad, iPod,
Apple TV, Android, or on the web.
If you’re already a Flickr member, enjoy these
updates by logging into your Yahoo account at www.flickr.com and updating our app from the App Store or from the Play Store. The desktop
Uploadr for Windows and Mac are available too. If you’re new to Flickr, we’d love to welcome you
to our community today!
