Mark over at Mashable has some thoughts on why the service didn’t make it. When I met with VP Marketing of Tubes, Steve Chazin at a Starbucks in Manhattan last August, he was so excited about the new release. I thought the software was very smooth. My big concern that I raised to him was that his target was mainstream but I wasn’t sure if the mainstream crowd would "get it" — he kept talking about using this to share photos with my mother, I doubted that would ever happen.
