Yesterday AOL announced that Winamp was dead, today the talk is that Winamp might be sold off to Microsoft along with Shoutcast (another product from the makes of Winamp). At this point it's tough to say if this is going anywhere but if AOL has already thrown in the towel on Winamp I would think they'd be happy to get anything for it. TechCrunch has the details.
Looks like the llama may not get off so easily after all. AOL yesterday announced that it was shutting down Winamp, media playing software for Windows and Android devices that it picked up through its $80 million acquisition of Nullsoft in 1999. But today Techcrunch has learned that AOL is talks with Microsoft to sell Winamp, along with Shoutcast, a media streaming service also developed by Nullsoft. We have also learned that AOL has been planning to announce the closure of Shoutcast next week.
