iPodder Debuts New Name

iPodder has changed its name to Juice. "It's time to move beyond the pod," said Martijn Venrooy, a Juice team member. "Most people don't realize that we've shipped support for Windows Media Player for over a year now and we've almost finished WinAmp support."

"The Lemon is part of our mythology because of our fresh approach to getting media," said Mark Alexander Posth, the team's content strategist. "After squeezing iPodder out, what remains is pure Juice."

The product's full name is Juice Receiver. "All the good short domain names were taken," said Garth Kidd, a Juice programmer, "so you'll have to type juicereceiver.com or juicereceiverstore.com to get a copy of the re-branded software. Sorry about that."

"Please do it soon," added Kidd. "I'd like to keep my house."

Juice has evolved from its basic beginnings as the world's first podcasting software to a mature, fully featured application. Donation-supported Juice has been downloaded over 1 million times since its debut last year, making it the world's most popular podcast receiver.

The official name change announcement is made at the Portable Media Expo and Podcasting Conference on November 11-12 in Ontario, California
(http://www.portablemediaexpo.com/) by Juice team members.

Juice will continue to be donation supported, based on open source software and licensed under the GPL (General Public License).

The Juice Team will continue to create great new products. They pioneered development of custom podcast receivers, including one for Warner Bros.'movie "The House of Wax" this spring, where customers can create and design their own pod catcher, preloading it with favorite podcasts and have available for download from their websites to share with friends or customers.

Best regards,
The Juice team
