SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Amazon.com wants to be more than a destination for shopping online — it also dreams of being a place where you can store your music, photos and videos and access them any time, from any computer.
The online retailer launched two new offerings late Monday: Amazon Cloud Drive and Amazon Cloud Player.
The first lets you upload and store files like music, videos and photos on Amazon's servers, which you can get to from a Web browser on a Mac or PC.
The second lets you play songs you've uploaded on your computer or on a smartphone that runs Google's Android operating software.
The "cloud" in the services' names refers to the practice of storing content online and streaming it to a computer over the Internet.
