Thought this was worth sharing from Business Insider. An interesting comparison that looks at news content such as NYTimes, WSJ, The Economist as well as music and video services. Is the NYTimes pricing themselves out?
I liked this post from Diane Mermigas at Mediapost that explains why Amazon has many advantages in the cloud/content war. Naturally, it begins with an existing billing relationship with the customer.
Amazon follows up with a similar feature of B&N’s Nook.
I love this idea as a way to fix some of the fair-use issues that come up with digital media. This seems like a great solution. Why not let a person promote your content by making it easy to share (loan)? I always bought my vinyl (I’m dating myself, I know) but made audio cassettes for friends in order to turn them on to something new.
