Online photo service Shutterfly has emerged as the only bidder for the customer accounts and images of Kodak Gallery online photo services business, the companies said Wednesday.

Only last year, I urged folks to get their backup in order. 

The times are a changin’!

KodakGallery is on life support.

And, that’s the part of “put everything in the cloud” that people forget.

This is the last month for folks use Apple’s IWEB to publish web pages. 

Don’t be a sucker. Stick to open standards and non-proprietary software like what you get from Apple and Microsoft.

Don’t be lured to the “Dark Side”.

Like the Gooferment, NO ONE is here to HELP YOU!

Apple, Microsoft, and all the ISPs want to lock you in.

No matter how cheap and easy it is to start, it’s always painful at the end.

    But how do you share them? Answer is: “You don’t; I do.” :-)

    This is why the ‘luddite’ approach works best. I store them on my computer, periodically back them up to DVDs or zip drive, and I run my own store. :-)
