    Has anyone tried this out?

    Any issues or is it a good feature? Once music purchased from Amazon MP3 is stored on Amazons cloud player can those Music files be copied to personal Computer or portable media drive?

    Ya it's pretty slick. And any music you buy and store on the cloud doesn't count against your 5GB free space, they store it for free. I just hope the music industry shuts up about it.

    Just seems like another way to take your content out of your control. Maybe I'm just old school but I prefer to have my content local..

    Any music that you've uploaded or bought can be downloaded through the service so you can store it locally on your device. I bought the new album by The Strokes for $9.99 and got upgraded to the 20gb plan for the next year. It's great!

    I don't understand what you mean. The content is never out of your control. You never lose the content you purchase.

    If you buy music and it is on your clouddrive, you can download it to either your phone or your computer anytime you want.

    The clouddrive is there as a backup so that you don't clog up your phone's SD Card with music. However you can download any song you want at any time.

    It's fantastic because it makes me not care about phones with high GB drives. Just stream from the cloud

    While streaming is fine for many, I still live in podunk usa. There are still many areas in town I not only lose 4g but 3g as well. Even with a decent 3g connection I have plenty of lag issues when streaming music and especially video. That's why I deleted pandora and bought a 32gb sd card.

    I wonder when Google is finally to open their cloud storage since I hear people are finding ways to unlock it already.

    Meanwhile, I'm going to look into Amazon's.

    I know. I use Amazon mp3 so I think it's an awesome feature. Unfortunately, most of the time I listen to music on my phone is at work and the reception in this building is so so. I mean, I'm capable of getting data just fine, but I don't think it's up to par for streaming music. It's such a struggle to stream music that it's a battery hog here. I prefer to have my stuff stored locally too.

    Still rockin' my 16GB SD card though. Might have to do like you did and go with the bigger Gee Bees.

    The only problem is that uploading takes forever.

    I like it. I do have my music on my PC and SD card, but it will be nice in the future with new devices or PCs not having to copy stuff over. Also, no worries if a hard drive dies or a cell phone falls in the water. I have only 4 gigs of music anyways, so the price is right.
