Stairways releases Combadge 1.1
Perth, Western Australia — 23 July 1998 — Stairways Software, Pty Ltd,
today announced the new version of Combadge, an elegant real time email
What is Combadge?
Combadge is a real time email companion, perhaps best described as a cross
between a talk, chat and email. Combadge will let you chat in real time
with other Combadge users without needing to know where they are – you
simply use their email address and Combadge finds them. If they are not
running Combadge, then Combadge will send your message to them using email
so you do not even need to know if they have Combadge.
Combadge is US$25 shareware. Site and organisation-wide licenses are also
available for US$500 and US$2000 respectively. Combadge requires a
Macintosh with TCP/IP connectivity.
* Easy User Interface.
* Real time chatting if both parties have Combadge.
* Email messages if they do not have Combadge.
* Connect using email address.
* Log conversations to email.
* Automatic configuration.
* Answering machine facility.
What’s New in 1.1?
Version 1.1 uses your email client to send offline messages instead of
handling email sending internally.
