Qarbon's MacOS Viewlet Tool

For Immediate Release
April 4, 2000

Qarbon.com Presents Innovative Viewlets to Mac Users Around the World:

Qarbon's MacOS Viewlet Tool Allows Creation of Vivid and Dynamic
Step-by-Step Movies That Illustrate Answers To Thousands of MacOS Questions.

(SAN JOSE, Calif., April 4, 2000) -- Today, Qarbon.com
(http://www.qarbon.com) released its latest Viewlet development tool to the
Macintosh community. After a highly successful debut earlier this year at
Upside Events' Internet Showcase and immediate acceptance within prominent
help desk website communities, Viewlet popularity has grown rapidly.
Designed as a revenue sharing opportunity for Viewlet authors and Web sites
playing Viewlets, Qarbon.com's technologies and strategies are now open to
Mac developers and advanced users who can easily create Viewlets for any
version of Macintosh OS, Mac application or development issue. Often called
online "movies," Viewlets change help files and FAQs into vivid windows
that "show" rather than "tell" a user how to perform a specific computing
or software development task.

"With our new Viewlet development tool for MacOS, we are able to bring
thousands of Viewlets to a large audience of Mac users," began Qarbon's
CEO, John Marshall. "The most exciting element for us is that each Viewlet
is created by a Mac developer or an advanced user. Using our distribution
model through http://www.teach2earn.com, the resulting Mac Viewlets answer
questions that apply to developer issues, user installation and
configuration problems, MacOS questions and Mac applications."

Qarbon.com acts as a central gathering and distribution station for
Viewlets. The company freely provides the development tool, named Leelou
that creates Viewlets to any interested party. Once a Viewlet is developed,
Qarbon.com allows any Web site to download and then post Viewlets for all
site visitors to use. Shared advertising revenues allow Viewlet authors and
Web sites playing Viewlet to earn income.

Viewlet Specifics For Macintosh Environments
Qarbon.com's Viewlet development tool, available at http://www.qarbon.com,
provides the following benefits:

-- Files produced are movies ("Viewlets") that play in a Java
browser, on any OS, without a plug-in
-- Viewlet files are very small - OK for dial-up users.
-- Lossless compression produces excellent results.
-- A first Viewlet can be created in about 30 minutes.

System Requirements to Create Viewlets for Macintosh Environments
-- Mac OS 8 / 9
-- Apple JVM 2.2
-- Power Macintosh G3 300Mhz
-- 96 Mb RAM (128 MB recommended)

Requirements to Play Viewlets
-- IE 4.0 or better, AOL 4.0 or better, (iCab, Opera & Netscape 6
coming soon)
-- 32Mb RAM, PowerPC

Founded with the goal of proliferating Viewlets across the Web for business
users, developers and general online surfers, Qarbon.com encourages open
authoring of Viewlets. In addition, Qarbon.com freely distributes Viewlets
across the Internet, offering ad revenue sharing to authors and Web sites
displaying the new technology. As an adjunct to help files, Viewlets are
being recognized as a significant advancement of support service that
fundamentally changes how all computer users access answers to hundreds of
thousands of software questions.
