Amazon Prime Music Unlimited – a great offer for a fantastic music streaming service

I’ve been using Amazon Prime Music Unlimited for a couple of years now and can genuinely say how rather good it is.

Well, Automattic has names for its employees too, all based on variation of the company name.

The thing is, it works. So why should we be avoiding this?
