BERKELEY, Calif., April 28, 1996 — StarNine Technologies, Inc., a
subsidiary of Quarterdeck Corporation, today announced its latest product,
WebCollage, will ship with free WebCollage templates allowing users to

intervals specified by the user, and publish the updated quote as a GIF
file on any Web server. The graphics include a Nasdaq logo, which also
serves as a live link to the Nasdaq site, and Nasdaq authorization for
StarNine and it’s users to republish these quotes in this format. The
announcement today coincided with the shipping of WebCollage (see related
release dated April 28, 1997), a new software product for content creators
that automatically generates dynamic, custom-designed infographics for
publishing on the Internet or other intranets.

“With WebCollage the sky’s the limit for what people can create,” explained
Avi Rappoport, product manager for WebCollage at StarNine. “We created
these templates because we wanted to provide a service for the Internet
community and show the power of WebCollage. So far, our beta testers have
come up with lots of innovative uses for WebCollage. It’s easy to implement
all kinds of useful ideas for taking dynamic information and presenting it
graphically, either on their desktop or a Web site.”

Anybody can link to a Nasdaq graphic from the StarNine image page.
WebCollage users can copy the template “as is” straight off the StarNine
site. Companies already included in the templates include Apple, Adobe,
Intuit, Macromedia, Microsoft, Cisco, Oracle, Netscape and Intel.
WebCollage users can also create their own graphics by simply
double-clicking on the template, changing the URL shape to the ticker of
their choice, adding the graphic and URL of that company, and it’s ready
for publishing on their site.
