SpiralFrog Dead In The Water? Ad-Supported Downloading, Too?
HypeBot this morning reminded me of an early post on this site about ad-supported download service SpiralFrog. Sources indicate that "a half dozen top executives and almost as many board members have exited SpiralFrog since Christmas." Which lends to the belief that everyone is jumping ship and SpiralFrog is doomed. A projected December launch has come and gone, with not a sound. However, a January launch is still being touted, though content will be more limited than previously expected.
This may be the death knell for ad-supported downloads, at least for now.
