Mobile diary: the new Flickr: missing the mobile boat?

My favorite online photo service, flickr, recently released a radical new design for its desktop site, which has attracted mostly positive reviews (particularly about the terabyte of free storage) but also much grumbling from long-time flickr users about the design and usability of the new site.

I still haven’t made up my mind about whether the new design is a net plus or minus, but I do think that it’s perhaps a bit behind the times. Flickr has released a rich, bandwidth-intensive desktop interface at a time when Internet usage is rapidly shifting to tablets and smaller mobile devices. Right move at the wrong time?
