• Amazon Pokes Fun at Apple While Offering U2 Album to Prime Users

    For those of you that donít remember, Apple started offering U2ís album ďSongs of InnocenceĒ right after their September 9th announcement, and gave it away for more than a month. As the company has wrapped up their giveaway, Amazon is also picking it up and offering the rock bandís album to its Prime users and subscribers for free. Apple received much criticism when the offer ran its course, as users who did not want the album had it downloaded automatically to their account.

    Amazon announced this giveaway on their Twitter account, but they didnít do it without making fun of Apple first. The company is offering this deal through Prime Music for those subscribed to Amazon Prime.

    Stream deluxe version of @U2ís Songs of Innocence Free in Prime Music. Add it to your library- we wonít do it for you.
    The stab was finished off with a winking emoji. Approximately 81 million people Ďexperiencedí U2ís album according to Apple, and is now being offered for $9.99 in iTunes, Beats Music, and iTunes Radio.
