MindVision Offers Fast, FREE, Flexible File Expander
SAN FRANCISCO, CA — January 5, 1998 — MindVision Software shipped
the preview release of MindExpander(tm), a FREE application that
automatically expands .sit, .sea, .bin and .hqx files at MacWorld
“MindExpander is about choice, openness, innovation, and competition
in an area of the Mac market that has been characterized by a lack of
options and closed proprietary standards. We wanted to develop a free
application that took the guesswork and hassle out of expanding a
file. Our ultimate goal is to help make file expansion a seamless
process,” said MindVision CEO Steve Kiene.
MindExpander expands standard Internet files and helps users get to
the files they’re downloading sooner and with less hassle.
MindExpander is smaller, runs faster, and uses less memory than other
decompression programs. The first of a new family of consumer
utilities, MindExpander gives Mac users a new freedom of choice.
According to Kiene, “The Internet is an incredible resource for the
millions of people now online. But with all of its benefits, the
Internet creates just as many frustrations. Downloading compressed
files is one of the biggest. MindExpander can eliminate most of that
Throughout the month of January, anyone who downloads MindExpander
can register to win MindVision’s FREE Volkswagen iBeetle. MindVision
is showing the iBeetle at MacWorld Expo booth #2511. Pictures are
also available at the MindVision web site. The iBeetle will be given
away in a drawing at the end of the month.
