Amazon Tweaks Cloud Service

Posted by: Matthew Tsai (07/07/11)
It looks like Amazon Mp3 has tweaked their cloud service plan. Among the changes: Any plan over 20gb now has unlimited storage space, old songs from Amazon can now be added, and there is now an Amazon cloud for the iPad.

No one cares. Spotify launches in the US this Tues. 7/12. Amazon's cloud is dust.

Obviously, this is to counter Apple's iCloud.

Welp, uploading over 100gb of music right now off the plan I got by spending two bucks on Transit's Promise Nothing. Amazon, you fucking asked for it!

I know there's something to be said for being to be able to seek out the music yourself, but I don't see how this is that much different then streaming sites we already have now. That being said, I'll admit I don't know a whole bunch about the product.

Amazon will never streamline iOS devices like Apple can. As long as iPods & iPhones are #1, Apple will always have the upper hand. I'd much rather put my money towards iTunes Match anyways. Something about this already seems outdated.

Man, I'd rather wait for iTunes Match and hope they also allow unlimited space with some tier of their plan. I might just use Amazon Cloud in the meantime. However, waiting to upload 359 GB worth of music is going to suck.

Amazon needs to copy what iTunes did with allowing customers to re-download their old purchases. I think that was genius. I'm really crazy about backing my stuff up, but I know I've lost stuff from Amazon somewhere along the way. I'm sure I'm not the only person who's had hard drives crash. Stop being stingy, Amazon.

it's going to be a 25,000 song limit on iTunes match. Whether or not its annually or total, I'm not sure.
