Shortening The Road

Google's new Android system means Amazon's mp3 store has a direct link to new phones. The iPhone already has that link to iTunes. It's not just physical media that's becoming obsolete - now you don't even need a personal computer if the craving gets to be too much.

Theoretically speaking, of course. For God's sakes, please back up your media purchases on a home computer. One lost phone and you're out for the whole thing.

I'd still love to see the DRM go away on iTunes (Amazon can do it, you can too) and the fidelity of the files to increase (can't fit the whole collection, but it still sounds better), but this sure beats an SD card.
