Default Amazon's "Cloud Player"

Link to Guardian article.

No mention of Dropbox, though I suppose as a less lucrative service than, say, Google, I can't expect it to get media attention. (Also, one could argue that Dropbox's primary purpose is file sharing while this "Cloud Drive" is solely for personal storage.) As the article says, though, the interesting part is the media streaming service. I expect Google would be within its rights to make Droid OS block stuff like this, but then it'd look like the bad guy. Heck, if it did that, it would be the bad guy. And the dumb guy.

I think the news stories are exaggerating the importance of this thing somewhat (when do they not, except when discussing third-world politics?). I still find the story somewhat interesting, though.

Needless to say (but here I am saying it), "discuss".
