Amazon Launching Service To Store Your Music, Videos & eBooks

Amazon is in talks with record companies and film studios about potentially creating a service to let users store their film and music in a library style format on the cloud. According to CNET they could be ready to announce the service as early as next week.

The service, which some say is a like a cloud locker, would allow users to store their existing music, film, and book collections on the cloud, even if the content is not purchased at Amazon. The current hold up is all the licensing requirements which Amazon has yet to work out with the major labels and studios.

Andy Rooney Has Not Gotten The Memo on eBooks

Andy Rooney from 60 Minutes does not understand why eBooks will replace paper books. In fact, he seems surprised at the notion that one might even consider buying them. Perhaps he just loves seeing a wall full of hard cover books in his plush office, perhaps he likes carrying a bag full of heavy paper books around if he is reading several. Perhaps he has stocks on a paper company — who knows!!


The point is, eBooks are definitely doing allot better than their paper counterpart (according to Amazon) – partly because they are easier to carry around, they cost much less and allows more people to consider them. They also allow regular people to publish their own stuff removing the bureaucracy of big publishing houses. Oh and did I mention that distribution is more effective and efficient — no shipping or printing cost, and easier to track.
