It would appear that Yahoo is being swallowed by Verizon. In thinking back, it was almost inevitable this would happen, as the company for years has been shrinking its services, shortchanging its customers, and now is basically dumping us.
I have no idea what to do.
Flick'r has 222 of my photos. I don't store them there, no worries, but if Yahoo goes, does Flick'r? it's become one of the more accessible places to post photos on the web. I have (and so do a lot of other people) about a bazillion email addresses with varying names for various endeavors. Luckily they so botched up Messenger this time I got out of the habit of it.
For now, Im going to wait and see what Verizon does to us. It may be awful, (the rending of clothes and bare flesh kind of awful) or seamless. Somehow I don't think 'seamless' holds out much hope.
I read the TOS, and by the fourteenth paragraph my eyes glazed over, and I gave up.
I feel sorry for people who are submerged in the email package, that can be a nightmare when you have to change your email addy--again--
If anyone has suggestions about how to transfer this blog to a new email address, please let me know. I have read everything I can find, and apparently the bottom line is, you don't get a new email addy and attach it to the blog, you move the blog TO it. yeah, I know. That made my eyes water too.
