The Story of Audion

November 14, 2004 at 8:59 pm | Posted in Macintosh | Leave a comment

Once in a while, a web page / blog entry / forum thread comes along that is well-written, interesting, and worthy of being mentioned and forwarded to friends. Cabel Sasser’s history of Audion is one such story. It tells the history of the Macintosh MP3 player market – the competition between Audion and SoundJam, the involvement of Apple Computer, and the decision made by the Audion team when faced with a choice between money and freedom.

Personally, I did not use either product. I used MacMP3 which was the Mac port of WinAmp until you-know-what for OSX came along.
