Amazon Launches Cloud Service for CD Owners



Amazon launched a free mp3 cloud service for customers who purchase CD’s as an incentive.

Now the question here is, what is this CD?

Bad joke.

Anyways, if you order a CD from you will be given the option to automatically download the mp3 files of the album for FREE! The option is called AutoRip, and I think this feature is kind of awesome.


Although CD’s are more or less dead in the US when it comes to sales, this is a great feature for anyone who has ever purchases a CD from Amazon, the mp3’s of those songs are ready for you to download right now!

This service is similar to Ultraviolet, the Blu-ray/Digital Download combo pack which is the format that most DVD’s have been released. It seems like a great feature and a smart move for Amazon and their users.


How many of you guys are interested in this service?

    Beautiful – won’t do this with many CDs since I typically only like 1-2 songs per CD and would rather just buy the singles, but it is nice to have your CD instantly.

    I wonder, if your computer memory gets cleared, can you go back to your Amazon account and re-download the CDs for free?

    Yeah, I just do straight digital music anymore. I have a small stereo system that plugs into my laptop headphone jack.

    Okay. This would be great if they’d do the same for vinyl. This is the only format I’ve purchased in a long time, other than any albums from local bands, and it sucks having to purchase the mp3’s separate from the record.

      Yes! If they offered the same plan for vinyl, I would never touch iTunes again!
