A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 188. Having recently turned on Apple’s iCloud Photo Library for Photos I’ve been thinking a bit about cloud storage and syncing for photos. Apple’s offering might be the best integrated if you’re a Mac and iOS user, but what about alternatives. In this episode I’ll share my experience with trying Flickr’s new service. It offers more storage for free and my reaction might surprise you.
