Ruckus will likely replace CDigix

July 18, 2007

A largely overlooked music streaming service available free to college students nationwide since January may rise to new prominence on the campus, as OIT officials consider signing an agreement with Ruckus Network, Inc...

CDigix has repeatedly declined to release statistics on the number of students who used the service, it received a lukewarm reception on the campus because students had to pay an extra fee to download songs and it wasn't available on Apple computers.

And with many of these same pitfalls present in the Ruckus service, Rebecca Jeschke, media relations coordinator for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an Internet activist organization, said she was hardly surprised more students weren't using the software already.
