Digital Media Winners and Losers of 2005
Anonymous Reader writes "Sony BMG tops this year's losers list for the rootkit scandal and its inability to draw customers to its digital portable players. Other losers include Grokster, Sharman Networks, and the CD format." "This year's winners list include Gnutella, BitTorrent, and the BBC for releasing recordings of all nine Beethoven symphonies online for free. Topping the list is Apple who continues to dominate with its iPod/iTunes combo."
