Rob Glaser is stepping down as CEO of Real Networks, the company
he founded in 1994. Sources say the move was instigated by his own
board, but that Glaser cooperated with the decision and was
involved with the transition.
Hard to believe this could happen to a genius like Glaser. One of my favorite predictions ever was this one from Glaser in 2003 on the iPod:
“It’s absolutely clear now why five years from now, Apple will
have 3 (percent) to 5 percent of the player market. … The
history of the world is that hybridization yields better
Apple still has a bit more than 5 percent of the music player market.
