I got a lovely email from amazon.com today telling me the good news: an album that I bought in 2005 has been added at no charge to my amazon.com download music library.

Gee, if I wanted those songs in MP3 format, dontcha think I would have ripped the CD by now?

they do this to save disc space in the cloud. So if you rip any random record, upload it i into the google cloud, you will get cd-quality mp3s - then they just need one copy without the sparkling from records.

It would be easy for me to rip CD tracks into MP3 as well, but the key is that Amazon doesn't know that. :P

What do you mean by "save space in the cloud" ? There is *infinite* space in the cloud. The cloud solves all problems and transcends all limitations.
Trust the Cloud. The Cloud is your friend. Not trusting the Cloud is treason, and treason is punishable by summary execution.

Yeah. The hype is so intense at this point that it's actually devolved into personal attacks on people who still want to run things on their own hardware.
We're referred to as "server huggers"

For a simple test of validity, replace the word "cloud" with "clown" and re-read the statement.

Why all of the different codecs? I can see the car and DJ purposes, but why so many others?

Why not just FLAC?
