Re: The Ruckus service
To All Administrators:
The purpose of this letter is to notify you that the Ruckus service was
shut down effective immediately. For those of you who have a Ruckus
server installed on your campus, we are in discussions with other
digital media companies who may be interested in utilizing the server
for another offering to your school.
We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you.

Subject: [CIO] Ruckus Networks Has Apparently Shutdown
Last night TechCrunch reported that Ruckus Networks had ceased
operations (as of this morning nobody else has picked up the story).
Parts of their site still worked, but as off this morning all Ruckus
related URLs now point to a message saying they have shutdown. Emails
I have sent to our Ruckus contacts have bounced back as undeliverable,
and their marketing firm informed me this morning that they haven't
been with Ruckus for some time. We are a Ruckus affiliate school and
no notice about this, which is probably the most frustrating thing.
I'm still trying to get some confirmation via other avenues, and will
post something more if I hear anything.
I'm not sure we're going to try and develop another partnership like
this. Instead we'll encourage students to use services likes the
iTunes Store or Amazon where they can actually own the music.
