Subject: SockeToome – The Personal File Sender Released
Black Diamond Products today announced the release of the first public beta
of its innovative new internet application SockeToome.
SockeToome is an application to send files to other users, directly,
person-to-person. It involves no central server, and can be used by people
with both static and dynamic IP addresses. It works at the sender’s
convenience, queueing files for transmission to other users, and holding
them in a queue until successfully sent. If you regularly exchange files
with other people, SockeToome can simplify your life.

No longer is it necessary:

* to entrust your files to email, or
* for both parties to be at their computers at the same time
Just pop your files into the send queue, and leave SockeToome running. When
the other person comes online, SockeToome will transmit the files.
SockeToome is available for the Mac and for the PC.
SockeToome is shareware, priced at $20 for a single user license. An
introductory special Correspondent offer buys two licenses for $26,
allowing you to set up a friend with SockeToome at a substantial discount.
