Just a touch of hyperbole here, don't you think? Is Picasa failing, for example? Seems outstanding to me, particularly since they introduced the online album service which is a heck of a lot easier to use than Flickr, in my view.

Hi Andrew,
Thanks for taking the time to comment, but I'm going to have to disagree with you on this one. I don't think it's hyperbole at all. Despite the fact that you think it's a great product, most people don't appear to agree with you... it's 22nd on a list of the top 33 Google properties with a 0.04% share. If you run a search for Picasa on Google you get 11,800,000 hits and for Flickr you get 148,000,000 which is a fairly substantial difference.

Of course, it depends on what exactly you mean by 'failure'. The product may well be very good, as you say. However, if that message isn't getting across, and clearly it isn't, then *that* is the failure.
