Power On and Apple Like Peas in a Pod

New NowPak(TM) Module Transfers Contacts to iPod

Columbus, Ohio — March 28, 2002 — Hot on the heels of Apple’s Macworld
Tokyo announcement of a brand new iPod model and built-in contact
management support, Power On has released a free NowPak(TM) module that
lets Now Up-to-Date & Contact users quickly and easily put their important
contact data on any iPod running the new iPod 1.1 software. With the NowPak
for iPod(TM), users can seamlessly transfer contact data from Now Contact
to the iPod. To download contacts, users just mount the iPod on their
Macintosh desktop (running Mac OS X 10.2 or later) and then simply run the
NowPak software, which creates a contact file on the iPod listing all the
contact information that has been transferred.

Beta tester Jean Stewart commented, “This is fabulous! I am a member of the
Barry Manilow fan club, and now I can take the music along with all of
Barry’s contact information. Of course I take all my business contacts,
