Submission + - Amazon auto-rip (

larry bagina writes: Amazon let one rip. But you'll probably enjoy the smell! (unless you're still observing that amazon boycott...). Anyhow, you wouldn't know it from slashdot, but the biggest news of the day (perhaps even the week given what a waste CES is): Amazon Cloud player now includes MP3s of CDs you bought going back to 1998. Wow. (Not all CDs and tracks are available, yet). And since many CDs are cheaper than digital downloads, you can buy the CD+MP3s for less than just the MP3s. Wrap your head around that one.
