Classical music news: You can now store music in Amazon.com’s “cloud.” But how good is it? And how does it work? | April 10, 2011

By Jacob Stockinger

The BIG news in distributing music — including classical music — is that Amazon.com has beaten the competition to setting up a “cloud” storage space for the music you buy in its remote servers.

Sounds like iTunes has just gone cosmic of or something like that.

Anyway, if you buy some digital music from Amazon.com and you get up to 5 gigabytes (that’s 5,000 megabytes) of free storage.

Then you can download anywhere or anytime to the appropriate device.

Don’t you love Brave New World!

Anyway, The Ear wondered what it meant, how it works and how good it is.

And so I figured you might want know too.

So here are some links to stories about it.

Happy reading.

Happy listening.

Happy buying.

And, most of all, happy storing and downloading.
