View Full Version : Roxio to acquire Napster assests, but none of the liabilities

I wonder what they will possibly use this for? I'm really surprised a "big" company like Roxio bought Napster, anyone care to guess whats going to come from it?

I have to wonder if Roxio might know something we don't about Napster's application folder. It's not like Napster as a company ever really had a production facility, just a rather small application and some network and computers. Maybe Napster folks figured out something huge and Roxio wants to step in early.

Toast, Jam and Easy CD Creator are all great tools for making audio CDs, DVDs and backing up data. I imagine they might be offering some kind of online sharing facility to go with their other software. I'd say the hotline protocol is better than napster myself but who really knows what use they have for it ?

Maybe they plan on creating a commerical file sharing application or something along those lines.

Toast was created by Adaptec. Roxio took control of the software a few years ago and brought us the interface and features we know today.

At least, that's how I remember it.
