Mr. Emerson continued, "It was obvious to us when we first started working with streaming media in 1998 that it was an immature and unsatisfactory technology. The experience was so bad that most people would not use the Internet for radio or music entertainment. We set our objective to make basic improvements so that the user experience would be "Just Like Radio" - instant-on, no buffering, and high quality audio. Our achievement, as reflected in our Buffering Patent portfolio, has fundamentally improved the technology base of the entire industry. As a result, media-based entertainment; both audio and video, has become one of the most popular uses of the Internet."
