So Many Closings!
In a previous post, I had mentioned Ruckus, a service that allowed UML students to download an unlimited number of songs for free. It was a great service, even though you had to use their proprietary software to play the songs and couldnít transfer it to itunes or iPod. But many students were dissapointed to login into either the player or website and find that the Ruckus service had unexpectedly been shut down. No prior notice was given from the company, making the news a shock to both students and IT administrators in schools across the nation. All the music already downloaded will soon be unplayable, which makes all the files I downloaded useless and a waste of space. Many students are upset about not being first warned about the sudden shut down, and are now resorting to illegal methods such as P2P and torrents to suit their music needs. Iíve read around, and it seems like Ruckus shut down because they just werenít making enough money to support their service.
On a side note, since Circuit City (and many other business) are going out of business, I was able to make several nice purchases for a very good price. One thing that I was able to buy was a nice digital camcorder, so hopefully Iíll be able to take some good videos and post them up!
Thatís all I have to say for now, till next time,
