Made with REALbasic Premier partners will receive new Apple hardware from
REAL Software if their product wins an Apple Design Award at Apple’s
Worldwide Developers Conference to be held May 6-10 in San Jose, CA.

February 19, 2002. Austin, TX – Winning an Apple Design Award is a great
honor. We know how much work is needed to meet the requirements because
we’ve been recognized for each of the last three years. Using REALbasic
will make it easier and we want REALbasic users to win. To do so they need
to submit their creations for consideration. REAL Software is just going to
sweeten the deal.

Any Made with REALbasic Premier Partner product that is a winner will
receive a new, top-of-the-line iMac and any runner-up will receive an iPod.
The product must be registered and compliant with the Made with REALbasic
Premier Partner standard prior to the award ceremony. REAL Software’s Made
with REALbasic program helps our users promote their products and provides
a central location for locating resources.

About the Made with REALbasic program:
The purpose of the Made with REALbasic (MwRb) program is to promote the
products created using REALbasic and the people who create those products.
The program is a cooperative effort between the users of REALbasic and REAL
Software, Inc. REAL Software asks that any product created using REALbasic
use the MwRb logo in their splash screen or about box, on their website,
and use the phrase “Made with REALbasic” in descriptions of the product in
press releases and announcements. Developers who meet these criteria will
be regarded as “Premier” Made with REALbasic Partners.
