I am not yet able to understand why people are going ga-ga over flickr. Why would I like to pay them the amount that they ask for a pro account when I can get a shared server space (much larger space) for much less money? Backups?
If you want free photo upload facility. Why not Yahoo photos which is free and provides unlimited upload and storage.
Basically they have provided an unusable interface to yahoo photos and flickr has some real cool utilities. If user interface is the reason people might subscribe to flickr, why isn't Steve Jobs the richest man on earch?
