iTunes Match at Year’s End

Kirk McElhearn:

So, if you’ve decided to throw in the towel on iTunes Match, you had better prepare. If you don’t have local copies of all your music, start downloading it now. Because if you don’t, when iTunes Match turns off for you, you won’t have access to any of that music, and you can’t get it back.

With the advent of Amazon Glacier, the pricing equation has changed. iTunes Match is $25/year. Storing my 88 GB iTunes library in Glacier for a year (e.g. using Arq 3) would cost roughly $11. Of course, iTunes Match offers other features beyond backup.
