Written by Jari Ketola @ 02 Jan 2001 17:42

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you've enjoyed the next millennium so far! Here's a quick recap on the happenings over the holiday season:
12/29: Napster back in court, but this time they are suing. Napster has sued online retailer Sport Service for trademark violations at NapsterStore.com. The NapsterStore.com is made to look like an official Napster store - which it is not.

1/1: Napster CEO Hank Barry shared his New Year's resolution: To make Napster prosper as a real business and to see that it is just a normal part of how people listen to music. I'm sure we are look forward to seeing the resolution realized!

1/2: Intel pushes into consumer goods with an portable audio player. With the move Intel is looking to broaden it's product line - an expected move after the problems Intel's processors, namely the Pentium4 chip, have gone through lately. The player would hold four hours of digital music in e.g. MP3 format, and retail at $299.99.
Check out the player's home page for an interactive demo and more information.

I guess that's all for now. Stay tuned for for more!
