Sonic Easy Media Creator?

I’m not sure how all the brands will shake out when the details are all in place, but Roxio as we know it is no more. The former leader in PC burning solutions sold off its entire software business to concentrate on selling downloadable music as Napster. As a distant second to iTunes Music Store in per-download music sales and a second place contender behind Rhapsody in subscription music services, this doesn’t seem like an obviously sensible move. I’m not a shareholder, so I don’t care what happens to their finances and I’m a huge fan of Napster’s subscription service, so I hope this is a win for consumers on all fronts. With Sonic acquiring the software portion of the Roxio business, you can be assured good things will happen when the product family combines with Sonic’s solid collection of DVD authoring tools.
