Earlier this week, Amazon started selling digital copies of Lady Gaga’s Born this Way album for a likely loss leading price of $.99. The intent was likely to get people onto their Cloud locker (free with purchase) before Apple releases theirs or Google’s gets out of invite-only Beta. Unfortunately, Amazon’s servers couldn’t handle the load and many users missed out.
So today they are doing it again: Born this Way with 20GB Cloud locker is again $.99. (One nice thing about Amazon’s locker is you can store documents and other files there as well.)
