  1. According to the latest tech rumors Google is preparing to challenge Apple's iTunes service with a digital music store of its own, while the latter is supposedly looking to expand its MobileMe service with some music-related features. But today Amazon got the jump on both companies with the launch of an online service that would enable its customers to securely store and access music through their computers and Android smartphones.

  2. Securely stored eh? Upload all your pirated mp3's linked to you and you will be ok? Hummmm I see some lawsuits in the future.
     
  3. I don't really see the need for this type of service. Maybe this combined with a service like Rhapsody would be cool. But for now this is just a fancy drop box. Sure you can stream MP3's but a safer way would be to stream directly from your computer unless your sure every MP3 you upload is legally bought. I like Rhapsody but it could be better. If someone could build on what Rhapsody has but do it better they would be #1. Buying Mp3's is so last year. Sure throw away your $1+ per song while people with Rhapsody can enjoy every song for $10 a month. Access to any song for a flat rate monthly will win in the end.
     
  4. Get a 69 cent album and you get 20GB free storage for a year. Not a bad deal!
     
  5. They cant tell whether an MP3 was illegally downloaded or not. With WMAs, they had licenses, but not with MP3s.
