Pirates of the Amazon - A taste of things to come?



There is a new FireFox add-on that adds a "Download 4 Free" button to the Amazon.com website. This a new method for making content available to end users and continues the trend of making content available to consumers through ad supported websites and services rather than the consumers paying for the content.

These sites like Pirate Bay are ad supported. Similar ways of making content available through alternative channels to consumers include attacks on iTunes with dTunes and on the App Store with AppShare.

Another trend is media streaming of content on ad supported sites. Hulu.com and NinjaVideo.com are just two examples of sites that do exactly that. More sites can be found on ovguide.com.

We at uaehackers.com do not endorse any of these sites but rather we shed a light on their existence so our readers are not kept in the dark about such emerging trends :)
