    VOIP spam

    It ain't spam, its voicemail. Its basically just telemarketing. The only difference supposedly is that rather than having to make an individual call, they can call hundreds at a time.

    The funny thing is that since the FCC wants to keep regulation off of the VoIP market, then they probably can't enforce the do-not-call list, meaning the VoIP people are going to get more and more of the calls.

    You win some, you lose some. hehehe

    Roxio makes Toast (etc.), and the run Napster. One of these makes money, the other hemorrhages it. Guess which division they are selling off? Wow.

    Roxio 2

    As long as Toast lives on, I don't really care who operates it. It used to be Adaptec. Roxio has made Toast run just like it used to. Let's hope things keep going that way with the next owner. Jam is pretty cool too. The only app I'm missing today is Toast Audio Extractor. I wish it was ported to OS X.

    Maybe the sale of Toast, Jam, CD Spin Doctor, etc., will give them capital that they need to make Napster profitable? This is one of their stupidest business mistakes, ever.
