"AJAX" ?? Interactive sites? Is this another drive-by interested in turning every website into entertainment for those with ADD?
I say take a look at some of the galleries Marissa "mardoli" has on PBase and tell me how she would do that on Flicker, etc. I see this as a place to display my pictures, sometimes related to projects going on in my real world, such that I can email a link to a friend or relative. I picked PBase for that in 2004, it worked -- and as of minutes ago, it still works. Sure there's some glitches and some occasional mysteries, but I don't see lack of features as a problem.

As for Pbase, it's still where I live and work. Photos I put on Flickr get very few views, but my Pbase photos get tons.. Works for me
There are now 300 pages in less than 24 hours of the roll out from people who hate Flickr which leads me to believe most people are not using it on tablets or phones. Or if they are then they still hate it anyway. If you think your photos aren't getting many views there now, just wait for the mass exodus. It doesn't even make sense to pay them any more. They're encouraging people to get rid of their Pro accounts and open a free one. There's a great business model.
I don't spend much time on Flickr and it was mostly for the groups. I can't even look at it right now. The groups I'm on died anyway in the past 24 hours. All so some people can use their apps? I don't get it.
