    Its pretty buggy at the moment .They will have to fix quite a few issues related to uploading etc.Instead of going full Monty with this update, they should have given people an opportunity to test it and review it before making it compulsory for everyone .

    Also apparently there is 300MB per month upload cap on the free Flickr accounts.

    Its being reported as a bug.. Let's see if that changes because otherwise its a totally useless.

    Yeah, hearing Bernie say, that since there are so many cars and drivers, driving them on the roads, there is no such thing as Formula 1 drivers anymore. Lol!

    She is clearly referring to the fact that equipment and quality have become easy to obtain, she is not commenting about the skill but rather the need for same platform for everyone since pictures for professional photographers compared to everyone else require same kind of hosting facilities.
