Cloud Music (pt 3)

Why is Amazon willing to lose money signing up people for their cloud music services? Hi, I’m Mickeleh continuing my series on Amazon’s cloud music services. To review. Part one covered the What? The cloud is the internet. Cloud storage is storage on somebody else’s hard drive somewhere out on the Internet. And there are thousands of services offering it. Cloud music services add to that special features for, well, music. Amazon is pushing a cloud storage service for music (and other things) called Cloud Drive. And a streaming player called Cloud player. They’re pushing it so hard that they’re practically giving it away. They even sold lady Gaga’s album at a loss to pull people in. Part two we covered the Why And we covered the Why Apple dominates online music sales through iTunes. Amazon has been able to take share from other players, but hasn’t dented Apple’s dominance. But there are two important market changes that Amazon may be able to take advantage of Amazon has been able to take share from other players, but hasn’t dented Apple’s dominance. Both Apple and Amazon grew year to year. Opportunity. As Android phones take share from iPhones, Amazon might be able to finally take share from iTunes. And that’s certainly worth a few million dollars to Amazon. But if you look at platforms, the picture is different. Combine all the Android phones together, and Android is the dominant platform Part three let’s look into Why Now? Let’s get started. OPENING Amazon might want to

  1. I don’t really have much to say, just that this whole series has been very informative. Learning new things is cool.

  2. I cannot take the suspense!! I have to know what this mysterious force is, and I have to know now-
    Oh. It’s in the comments. THAT cloud service. Don’t get me started on THAT cloud service.

  3. Yes!
    I affected this video with my comment on Google Music Beta on the previous one (The Clash of the Clouds), or you had it planned all along and I predicted what you were going to talk about, either way I’m happy 🙂

  4. @tanner1ie Google’s bids don’t always go through, there’s multiple times when they’ve bid very high and it hasn’t gone through. Most recent is probably Groupon who they bid over a billion for, and Groupon wouldn’t sell.

  5. well I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say you’re damn good at what you do. …finally caught up with the cloud videos- all info I didn’t previously understand. woo! success.
    *apparent technophobe* oy gevalt.

  6. Once again, Mickeleh, nice explanation! I’m excited about all of this. I’m looking forward to part 4, now! I wonder if they’ll be a part 5? 6?

  7. Just thought of something else. All of the music on youtube is accompanied by a Buy on iTunes button. I bet those buttons will all be replaced with Buy from Google buttons just as soon as google music is rolled out. Now that will put a dent in iTunes.

  8. Just thought of something else. All the music videos on youtube have little “Buy this song on itunes” button. I bet that will be completely replaced with “Buy this song from google”, and that will put a dent in itunes.

  9. Just thought of something else. All the music videos on youtube have little “Buy this song on itunes” button. I bet that will be completely replaced with “Buy this song from google”, and that will put a dent in itunes.

  10. @Monisuresh Nope. I’m wearing the rare “& then we dance” shirt from @JohnnyDurham19. Which, IMHO, is cause for even greater jealousy.

  11. @mickeleh Sorry, seems i caught half a story once and didn’t check up on the result.
    I heard about Google lining up a takeover bid for Amazon and assumed given their size it had gone through.

  12. I still think you’re awesome for being able to know how to work video editing more than a majority of people your age. You rock~
