Music in the Cloud: Scanning and Matching

I've had the chance now to work with the three big scanning and matching service, iTunes Match, Amazon Cloud Player, and Google Play.  I wanted to share my experience with these services and show the strength and weaknesses of all three.

First I'll go over how each service works, and then compare how each of the services compare to each other in each segment of the process.

My Pilot Post

There are a few times each year when a topic grabs my attention & squeezes my opinion out of me, or I have spent some time with something and I want to write down my review.

Twitter is too short and can irritate my followers with a flood of tweets.  I don't like Facebook that much and a good post will get buried in the timeline to be forgotten.  There aren't enough people on Google+ to be a primary vehicle of communication.  Blogger will be that avenue that allows me to take a detailed, well thought out look at things, and hopefully communicate that with others.  Luckily for you, the reader, most of these posts will be tech related.  All the social networks work great as religious, political, current event soap boxes for the masses, and I get tired of reading their dribble.  I don't need to add to that white noise.

So comment if you feel so inclined, otherwise read and I hope you take away a little piece of useful information for yourself.
