Amazon’s Cloud Drive to Make Music Piracy Even More Convenient


Amazon today introduced Cloud Drive, a "music locker" service that will let you store your music (five gigabytes' worth, at first) on their web servers instead of your computer. That means you'll be able to play your jams, whether legally or illegally acquired, off any Internet connection, wherever you are. (It won't work on iPhones, though.) Google and Apple have been working on similar services that are expected to launch in May and June, respectively. But, for now, Amazon can be all like, "Yeah, we got to the future first, no big deal." [Reuters via RS]
