As for music services, I cannot get behind any service that requires me to advertise to continue to use the service. So I'm watching ads and sharing links to products with the intent on keeping the music going? That digital prostitution. I'm no longer sharing things I like just because I like them, I'm sharing them because I want something in return. How do you gauge how much your "friend" "likes" something when they may just be pushing that product to keep the music flowing for them? That's a violation of my trust and I would never do that to someone else. My endorsements are free, they come from my heart. If I push a song or a book or movie, I'm doing it because I really love it...not because I need another fix.
That being said this article is pretty damn good, hence the reason why I'm pushing it on you. Hopefully he will keep letting me read his articles even though I don't want anything in return.
Today Amazon announced it's new tablet: The Fire (insert jokes here). It's a pretty snazzy looking device that really only accomplishes one thing, it serves Amazon content (books, music, videos) directly to it's consumers no PC needed. Unfortunately that is all it does. With no 3G, GPS or access to an official android market it will always be a niche device. The technolust is still there for me, I want one for sure. But really just to play with it...I can see this sitting on a shelf in about 3 months unless it can be jailbroken.
The new multitouch Kindles are a nice addition though, with price points that put them in the range of impulse buys. I can see myself picking up one of these as the holidays approach. I've always wanted an E-Ink device and this is a pretty painless way to pump into the ebook arena.
So please, everyone reshare.
It's hard to imagine that it has been 20 years since then.
