Rumors Claim Amazon Mini Launch New Auto Rip CD Service

An interesting rumor is making the rounds today that claims Amazon is set to launch a new service called auto rip . According to sources who claim to be familiar with Amazon's plans, Amazon would provide free digital versions of every song on a physical CD that a user purchases. The songs would be placed in the user's digital cloud locker at no additional cost.

Even more interesting than the fact that Amazon is considering giving users free digital versions of tracks purchased on physical CDs is the fact that Amazon is that to be offering these free digital versions for CDs that people bought in the past. Amazon has been one of the largest online sellers of CDs for a number of years. If it offered free digital versions of music that people purchased in the past, it would be providing a huge number of digital songs.

The move is expected to be similar to what Hollywood is doing with UltraViolet. The user would purchase a physical CD of their favorite artist or group and they would get digital versions of all the tracks available at no additional cost that can be accessed using Amazon's cloud service from compatible mobile devices. There has been no official announcement from Amazon at this time.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
