Goodbye Ringo

I got a sad note from Ringo today. No, not Ringo Starr, but Ringo the photo and video sharing community. The note reads:

May 31, 2008

Dear Ringo member,

After much consideration we have decided to end the Ringo service.

As of June 30, 2008 the Ringo service is ending and you will no longer have access to your Ringo account.

How do I get my photos?

We created a new feature that will allow you to download your photos to your computer. Click here to download your photos.

You may also order a CD of your photos. Just sign in to your Ringo account, click on the "You" tab, click" Order prints" and then "Photo Disks".

How do I get my videos?

Videos uploaded to Ringo were hosted for us by a partner. This partner has decided to end this service and after June 30 videos uploaded to Ringo will no longer be available.

Thank you for being part of the Ringo community.

The Ringo Team

I must say that after my initial creation of my account, I did not use this service all that much. I have found Picasa Web Albums to be a much better solution. Oh well ... Goodbye Ringo.
