Why buy the song when you can get the album for free? (Well, almost for free.)
Lady Gaga's entire "Born this Way" album is selling for $0.99 on Amazon.com today.
Demand for the album caused problems for Amazon, the Associated Press reported. Amazon experienced a high volume of traffic that caused delays for those downloading the album.
The new album includes the title track, "Born this Way," as well as top hit "Judas."
Perhaps the demand was due in part to this incentive: People who buy any album from Amazon through the end of the year can get 20 GB of cloud drive storage free for a year.
Read the fine print though; you will have to pay for storage *after* the first year's service.
For the unfamiliar, cloud computing is when a user's files are saved to and stored on a computer network, rather than a user's personal computer (or smartphone, or whatever device is popular today). It allows the data to be accessed by any device connected to the cloud computing service.
Cloud computing doesn't have to be just for storing music on the go. Here's how some high school students are using the technology to advance their studies.
Amazon, Google and soon, Apple, will have competing cloud computing services.
