Amazon AutoRip and the Value-Added "Home" Strategy - When discussing the new Amazon AutoRip feature with friends, I was excited. I’ve been shopping at Amazon since 1998 or so and I have spent quite a bit of money there. I’ve also been ripping my own CDs since that time, but getting more content in the cloud without any work on my part is always welcome.
