Online retailer Amazon has launched a service that stores free digital versions of CDs bought via its store.
Amazon AutoRip will automatically keep a digital copy of eligible CDs in a customer’s cloud storage account.
Customers will be able to get at the music via Amazon’s Cloud Player on the web or through tablet and smartphone apps.
Amazon has drawn up a catalogue of 50,000 CDs that are eligible for AutoRip.
From PC Magazine:
AutoRip is retroactive, Amazon said, so anyone who has purchased a CD that is part of the AutoRip service since 1998 will find that music in their Amazon Cloud account. The service is free, and you’ll gain digital access to your new music before the physical CD arrives.
