It Doesn’t Matter That Amazon’s Music Streaming Service Is Lame

Much of the Prime Music criticism is completely valid. But it probably doesn’t matter. Amazon customers are not only likely to see Prime Music as a benefit, but as the best kind of benefit, one that’s totally free, passed along by those generous benefactors in Seattle. Amazon Prime was born as a two-day delivery service—buy as much as you want on the site and get two-day shipping for $79 annually—and that’s what the average subscriber still thinks he’s paying for. All the extras, including video streaming, some free Kindle ebook rentals, and now, Prime Music, tend to be viewed as just that, as perks or extras. – Brad Tuttle, TIME http://ift.tt/1qjhl5P
