Roxio software targets iPod users
Boom Box, announced on Thursday, comprises five applications, including some geared for people who want to tinker with more than just music. It's priced at $49.95.
For those who want to delve into the trendy area of podcasting, the iPodderX application directs podcast subscriptions to a desktop from which those audio files can be transferred to Apple Computer's digital-music device. Roxio isn't alone in this area: GarageBand.com last month unveiled a set of online podcast tools.
In a similar vein, the Audio Hijack application lets people schedule the recording of Internet radio broadcasts. Users can create their own audio files from text-based documents via the iSpeak It software.
CD Spin Doctor, meanwhile, is a tool for digitizing music from analog sources such as tapes and LPs, and MusicMagic Mixer analyzes songs to automatically generate playlists.
Roxio last year was sold to Sonic Solutions by a larger entity that also owned the Napster music service. That larger company, also known as Roxio, then changed its name to Napster.
