  1. I used to use Real player a lot in the late 90s. Over time it has started getting more and more shitty, especially while trying to connect behind an office firewall. Completely stopped using RP now. WMP seems to work well enough for my needs.

  3. Apple should buy Real. Real’s market cap is $1.5b and it has some $800m in cash so the price would be marginal. This could jump start Apple’s subscription service which seems inevitable. All Real video content could be converted to QuickTime which would finally put the disgraceful Real client out to pasture.

    And the circus that would unfold with Steve and Rob together on stage would be priceless.

  4. I think streaming is quick becoming a one company game, but the standard looks to me to be WMA and not any Real thing.

  5. why do you care so much
    it is a company with a guy in charge who gets to make a descion and what he choses to do is up to him so leave the guy alone who cares about real player it sucks just get an Ipod or use Windows Media Player. Microsoft is 10 times better then apple
