Denver Post: Photobucket restores photos “taken hostage,” hopes to lure back customers with cheaper plans after last year’s $399 debacle. “Photobucket is back! And so are all of the photos that disappeared after the Denver company decided last summer to charge up to $399 for hosting images. The company, which became one of the nation’s largest photo-sharing sites in the early 2000s, said Thursday that it has rejiggered management and wants to do ‘the right thing for customers’ and dropped hosting fees to $2.49 a month or $24.99 a year, though for a limited time, fees are $1.99 a month, or $19.99 a year.”
