There’s been several rumors about Google trying to accquire the photo service Flickr, but Yahoo made the run as Flickr reports in their own blog:

Holy smokes, SOMEBODY out there is bad at keeping secrets!! Yes! We can finally confirm that Yahoo has made a definitive agreement to acquire Flickr and us, Ludicorp. Smack the tattlers and pop the champagne corks!

I bet Yahoo will make several changes about Flickr’s services – will it remain in the same way as now or will Flickr become integrated into the Yahoo network as „Yahoo’s Photo Service“? Time will tell us…
