Google should buy Flickr!

Today, for the very first time since I've heard about it months ago, I visited Flickr.com just to see what the service looks like. Flickr is a photo organizing/sharing service, kinda like Google's Picasa program, except it's web-based. As I browse through the online tour, I'm starting to see Nathan's point: it would really be a very, very smart move for Google to acquire Flickr (hopefully, this might happen by the end of February). Picasa's Hello component sucks, and I bet replacing Hello with a much more advanced, web-based, and standalone (not to mention nice-looking) photo-sharing service like Flickr would be best both for the company and its customers.

But what do you think?
