It made some headlines, and is about to make more during superbowl. Amazon has started selling mp3’s from all four of the major record labels. It’s a pretty cool revelation, so I went ahead and checked it out.
Guess what? Linux users, you are screwed. In order to download albums from Amazon, you must “Get the Amazon mp3 downloader”…which is not available for Linux. Excuse me? Say what? I have downloaded literally hundreds upon hundreds of files from the Internet, and never have I needed a special tool other than Firefox. Why now?
Amazon, if you’re going to do something great like this, do it whole hog. Don’t make me install junkware. After all, I’m choosing to give you money, right?
I love getting feedback and comments. Make my day by making a comment.
