TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA, October 1, 1999 -- Conduits Technologies Inc.
released Interface 1.0 Beta today for Windows CE Palm-size PCs.
Interface is a new look and feel for Windows CE devices.
Interface supplements the existing shell services found on Palm-size
PCs (the desktop, taskbar, and start menu) giving them a fresh new
look as well as new functionality not found elsewhere.
Interface integrates a one-tap file list explorer into the desktop
of the P/PC, much like other utilities for the P/PC. However,
Interface gets its data off the start menu shortcuts that already
exist, thereby supplying an alternative to navigating the start
menu to launch programs. Interface has the ability to browse other
directories on the P/PC, and also navigate to your Settings (Control
Interface changes the look of the taskbar, painting it black and
adding features. The system tray (where icons such as desktop
connection or AC power are placed) is visible, but can be made hidden.
The icon for the currently running program is shown, along with the
title of the currently running program (e.g. when running Calendar,
a Calendar icon shows up and the taskbar is titled 'Calendar').
A modified SIP icon (Keyboard or inking method, etc) is present as well,
and the desktop icon has been changed to either a Conduits icon or a
Interface integrates the functionality of a task manager: by swiping up
on the application title, a list of running tasks (and their icons) is
present. In the future, Interface will be fully customizable,
including the colors and images used.
Interface 1.0 beta is freeware available from the Conduits website
(http://www.conduits.com/), and will expire on 1 November 1999, at
which point the final version will be available for an estimated
retail cost of $9.95. Documentation and a "skin library" will also
be online at that time.
Conduits develops several other commercial applications for Windows CE,
including PalmBrowser (an online web browser for P/PC), PalmPlayer (an
MP3 player for P/PC), TaskSwitcher, and several open source efforts,
such as CoPilot for Palm-size PCs.
