Bsquare’s Baxter at it again

On June 20, the WSA is hosting a evening event looking at digital media. And one of the presenters is Bill Baxter, who co-founded Bellevue-based Bsquare.

Baxter, who has been lying relatively low since leaving Bsquare in 2004, is listed as the CEO and co-founder of Snaptune. According to its Web site, the Bellevue-based company is developing software for the radio.

“Simply pick a radio station, or select a show to record, and it does the rest,” the Web site says. “You get a detailed list of all the programs you asked it to record and, after a short ‘learning period’, it also highlights the individual songs that were played during those programs. You can click on any song to listen to, learn more about, and purchase.”

The service works by connecting your radio to your PC using a cable, decide what stations and shows you want to monitor “and let Snaptune do the rest.”

Other participants in the WSA event are from InfoSpace, SmileBox, JupiterResearch and Real Networks.
