Google Launches New Web Album Service

Google launched their Picasa photo editing software a good while ago, but today they unveiled a brand new service with the Picasa name -- Picasa Web Albums (link).

With sites like Photobucket and Flickr gaining monstrous popularity, you knew it was only a matter of time before Google tried to get in on the action. Picasa Web Album lets you create multiple albums of photos, each with captions, just like Flickr. You are also able to add other users' Web Albums to your "favorites".With Google Web Albums, you receive 250 MB of free storage, and you can purchase an additional 6 GB for $25.00 per year. You can sign up on a first-come first-served basis at Picasa Web's site.

Could this be the Flickr killer? Well, killing Flickr would not be a monumental defeat because it has not grown to epic porportions quite yet. I think Google entered this market at just the right time. The Google/Picasa name alone will make Google Web Albums a force to be reckoned with.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
