[NPL] Farallon’s EtherMac iPrint Adapter SL

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Farallon Announces EtherMac iPrint Adapter SL – The First
and Only iMac Connectivity Solution for “serial” StyleWriters

ALAMEDA, Calif., August 25, 1998 – Farallon today announced the addition of
EtherMac iPrint Adapter SL to its complete range of iMac connectivity
solutions. Available in September, the SL version of iPrint will allow
users to integrate their iMacs with existing “serial only” Apple
StyleWriter printers. Additionally, Farallon’s EtherMac iPrint Adapter LT,
which provides connectivity to LocalTalk printers and other LocalTalk
devices, is now shipping- two weeks ahead of schedule. These two adapters
offer the widest range of options for connecting iMacs with existing
printers and other network devices in homes, schools and businesses. The
EtherMac iPrint Adapter LT and EtherMac iPrint Adapter SL eliminate the
need for iMac owners to purchase new printers for use with their iMac.

“iMac’s stunning looks and Pentium-toasting performance is exciting
developers and customers around the world,” said Phil Schiller, vice
president of worldwide product marketing at Apple Computer. “With long-time
Macintosh advocates like Farallon providing excellent connectivity
products, iMac customers can easily integrate iMac into their networks.”

“There are millions of LocalTalk and StyleWriter printers installed,”
states Ken Haase, Director of Marketing for Farallon. “The EtherMac iPrint
Adapters make it remarkably easy and affordable for anyone to connect their
iMac to their existing printers.”
