Amazon buys Audible

It’s all over the Web that Amazon have bought up Audible.com

Not sure what I think of this.  I’m a big fan of audible, the finest source of unabridged audio books on the planet.  Very affordable especially if you sign up to one of their listener plans, very accessible software and Website, fantastic telephone support (on the very rare occasion I’ve needed it), and all round good egg!

In theory the might of Amazon should be good news, access to resources, experience, market etc.

But in reality I’m afraid that Audible will be swallowed up and become just another function of a world dominating oligopoly. 

Is the Web turning in to every highstreet in the land? Where you think you’re spreading your business around and encouraging competition but actually theyre’ all just fronts for the one enterprise…
