18 May Will Amazon’s New Music Download Store Sour Apple’s Sales?
Raise your hand if you’ve ever purchased anything from Amazon – or if you’ve ever found yourself reading customer reviews on Amazon before making a purchase. Amazon has been wildly successful in the area of making shopping online easy, fun, and downright addictive through their highly intuitive related products search.
The news that Amazon will soon begin selling downloadable music has the industry wondering – will Amazon seal a slice of Apple’s pie?
Amazon will offer its music in MP3 format – meaning it will work for the iPod, the Microsoft Zune, and just about every other music player out there. Amazon is already the largest online retailer of CD’s, so it seems inevitable that they will likely rule the digital world as well.
