Amazon gives free unlimited backup account with prime (which is around $99)

I checked on this because I it sounded too good. Here's what I found.

Your Amazon Prime membership comes with Amazon Prime Photos, unlimited photo storage and 5 GB for videos, music, and other files.

Unlimited backup of any files is $60 a year.

I'm not sure I believe this is true. I've been to many concerts where they've stated no recording devices.
The music industry has not successfully sued (settled maybe) very many "home" pirates, but I don't recall sample quality coming up in any of the lawsuits I've read about.
The movie industry on the other hand has a history of going after cam quality videos.
It seems that they are much more likely to go after well known exploiters, those they can make money off of, or those they can make precedent off of before they worry about the low vs high quality.

They need to quick dicking around and make a mobile app for it (and support ChromeCast too, while they're at it). I have Prime, but I never use it for video because it's not convenient. Also, for that reason, I would never suggest it to someone else if they were looking for a place to watch videos. It's nice for 2 day shipping though.
