PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Just before Christmas Songbird 1.4.0 was released, and a new fix versions was released today as 1.4.3. Songbird now supports MSC storage devices and CD ripping, bringing the app one step closer to replacing iTunes for some users. What's particularly interesting is that Songbird now specifically pushes their product against users of Android, Nokia and Palm smartphones -- which is something I also suggested a few months too. Hopefully Google, Nokia, and Palm will get behind the small team in San Francisco to help out the cause, since it's also on their best interest too.

I can't pinpoint any singular reason, but I find Songbird to be awful. I was really excited when the project was first announced, a xulrunner media player sounded awesome because Firefox was a FOSS darling. Fast forward to today and it now just sounds silly. I just installed it on a Pentium M laptop with 1.5GB RAM and it really makes things crawl. Not really sure where they are trying to go.
