I just can't believe they are actually asking people to continue paying for Pro status. Even with an unlimited storage...if the max daily upload is 300MB (i think someone mentioned this earlier), then it takes literally hundreds of years to reach the 1TB limit on free accounts. Would be interested to see how invasive these ads can be on the free accounts.
I can't locate info on a daily limit, but Free users now get to upload videos up to 1GB, and get unlimited monthly bandwidth, so I doubt there would still be a daily max of 300MB.
- 1 Terabyte of photo and video storage
- Upload photos of up to 200MB per photo
- Upload 1080p HD videos of up to 1GB each
- Video playback of up to 3 minutes each
- Upload and download in full original quality
- Unlimited monthly bandwidth

What account option is a slap in the face? That a Pro user pays only half as much to avoid ads?
Just that it appears as though Yahoo decided to reward Free users and newcomers, and ignore the loyalty of long time Pro users. They are making it tempting for some Pro users to switch to Free, and at the same time they are saying, "If you leave (Pro), you can never return, and you forfeit all of your current Pro benefits. But we are giving you the option of later on giving us even more money for only removing adds, or doubling your storage." The new business model is a slap in the face because it makes loyal users feel unwanted other than for their money.
