Amazon Cloud has been getting some great press coverage lately – particularly geared toward its Cloud Player music service. Yet, I don’t think this is the interesting news story.
How about the fact that Amazon is offering 25 GB of free cloud storage? Sure, music is a great use of this. But so is everything else! USB drives have officially replaced CD and DVD burning. But now the cloud takes away the need for the USB. This is exciting. This is the news story.
Not the idea that I should start buying my digital music through Amazon rather than iTunes, which I’ve been using for years now. Yeah, I guess I could move these files over to Amazon’s cloud, but that’s work. Maybe Apple will come out with their own soon enough. And until then, Amazon’s Cloud is still the only free 25 GB cloud out there.
That’s newsworthy.
