Roxio today launched The Boom Box, a software suite of five must-have iPod applications designed to reveal the device’s full power and potential. The versatile suite enables iPod users to optimize their music enjoyment by expanding and enlivening their portable music collections and broaden their audio entertainment beyond music to include podcasts and Internet radio broadcasts. In addition, The Boom Box allows users to convert Web pages, emails and other text-based documents into audio files and create their own personal audio books that they can listen to on the go.
The suite includes CD Spin Doctor (which offers a straightforward way to digitize vintage vinyl and tape recordings), MusicMagic Mixer (a personal, portable DJ), Audio Hijack (which captures audio from any application in real-time), iPodderX (which makes it easy for users to subscribe to their favorite podcasts), and iSpeak It (which allows users to convert text-based documents into spoken word audio files).
The Boom Box is available online today and will be widely available in retail stores later this month for a suggested retail price of USD$49.95. The Boom Box also includes special discount coupons and offers from Wiley books, Audible.com and Belkin Corporation.
