Power On Software Releases New Version of Now Up-to-Date & Contact

Best Selling PIM in Mac History Now Compatible with Mac OS 7, 8, and 9

Columbus, Ohio -- December 15, 1999 -- Power On Software, Inc. announced
today that it had commenced shipments of a new version of the best-selling
Macintosh contact manager and calendaring product in the history of the
Macintosh. The Eddy Award winning product is the easiest, fastest Personal
Information Manager available on any computer platform. The new release,
Now Up-to-Date & Contact, is Power On's first revision of the product
since acquiring it from QUALCOMM, Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM). The new
version 3.8 offers compatibility with all Macintosh operating systems from
version 7 through the recently released OS 9.

In conjunction with this product release, CNET's Download.com is hosting an
exclusive feature on Now Up-to-Date & Contact Version 3.8. A fully
functional trial version of Now Up-to-Date & Contact can be downloaded from
http://www.download.com beginning at 12 p.m. EST (9 a.m. PST).

Always in a class by itself, Now Up-to-Date & Contact offers blazing speed,
even on older Mac hardware, together with flexibility and ease of use that
set it apart from every other product in the category. Superb as a
standalone single user product, it offers amazing flexibility in a
multi-user environment, where group scheduling is a snap and contacts and
calendar events can be shared or marked as private. Among some of its
outstanding features are:

* Blazing speed makes finding a single contact or group of contacts
instantaneous

* Maintains complete contact histories of phone calls, correspondence,
completed items, notes and open to-do's

* Automatically logs email messages sent from Now Contact using all
popular email programs

* AutoType makes data entry a breeze as Now Contact automatically
enters names, addresses, or any other data

* Find contacts instantly by just typing in initials or a few letters of
a name

* Sort lists with a click, even adding multiple sort levels with an
additional click

* One click searches for all contacts of a certain category

* Use keywords to further refine contact searches

* Server based architecture permits multiple users even in remote
locations via TCP/IP connection

* Publish schedules and contacts to the web and share with anyone, even
if they don't own Now Contact and Up-to-Date with Now Web Publisher
which is included free!

* Drag and Drop data management elevates Drag and Drop to a new level of
elegance and intelligence

* Automatic synchronization of files between different computers,
including PowerBooks and Desktops

* Complete printing and word processing built in, with incredible
flexibility and customization options for printing labels, envelopes,
letters, faxes, and all popular calendar formats, such as DayRunner,
Avery, Franklin and Day Planner

* Built in mail merge makes handling large contact lists a snap

* Built in automatic timer tracks time spent on specific items to
provide a complete record of time expenditures

* Link files from any application to contact records

* Drag contacts on to the calendar to schedule events automatically

* Flexible reminders and alarm notification ensure no appointments or
deadlines are missed

* Automatically launch documents related to an appointment

* Extensive on line help

* Calendar offers day, multi-day, week, month, and Year Views

* Add banners and custom graphics to calendars

* Automate creation of recurring events

* Workgroup calendaring permits invitations to be sent and automatically
set up

* QuickPad allows entry of notes in English (such as lunch with Bob)
and have Now Up-to-Date & Contact enter the appointment automatically
and schedule it for the correct time and person without running
NowUp-to-Date & Contact

* QuickContact keeps all your important contacts available in the menu
bar without even having to open the application and allows searching for
an important number without launching Now Contact

* QuickDay permits entry of appointments and setting of reminders from
the menu bar's control panel without having Now Up-to-Date running

All these features just scratch the surface of the power and flexibility of
Now Up-to-Date & Contact. Changes made by one user to a calendar are
automatically synchronized, keeping everyone informed with the latest
information. Even if a user disconnects from the network, the contacts go
along, and are automatically distributed upon return and reconnection to
the network. With support for the latest telephony protocols such as TAPI
and its Internet integration, Now Up-to-Date & Contact provides the tried,
tested, state of the art contact management and calendaring solution for
the Mac.

Now Up-to-Date & Contact is available from dealers and catalog resellers
worldwide. The suggested retail price for the boxed version is $99.95 and a
downloadable version is available for $89.95. Previous owners can download
the upgrade for $39.95 and purchasers of any Power On version of the
software subsequent to July 21, 1999 may download the upgrade free.

The Now Software product family, including the flagship products Now
Up-to-Date(TM) and Now Utilities(TM), has consistently garnered industry
praise, including Product of the Year, multiple Editor's and Reader's
Choice honors and seven World Class Awards. The Power On Software release
of the ACTION Utilities collection has been nominated for this year's
prestigious Eddy Award in the category of best utility.

Power On Software, Inc. was founded in 1993 and has established itself as a
leader in utility software with its back to back nominations for the
prestigious Macworld Eddy Award. With the introduction of ACTION Files, the
product that The Mac Report called the greatest third party extension of
all time, Power On successfully launched its ACTION Utilities line. To
further its dominant position in the utilities market, Power On acquired
Now Utilities from Qualcomm Incorporated. Recently, Power On has acquired
Symantec's leading security utility, Norton DiskLock and has released On
Guard for Windows to complement its Macintosh version. Power On is
committed to providing the highest quality productivity software, with an
emphasis on system enhancements and maintenance, and a strong customer
oriented philosophy.
