Adaptec to Purchase Corel CD Creator

Milpitas, Calif, -- June 26, 1996 -- Adaptec, Inc. and Corel Corporation announced an agreement today providing for the sale of Corel's popular Corel® CD Creator software program and PD optical recording technology to Adaptec® in a $12 million (US) cash transaction. All versions (including localized versions) of Corel CD Creator, the leading retail software for compact disk recordable (CD-R) drives, will be included in the sale. Adaptec publishes Easy-CD Pro® Software, the leading choice of CD-R peripheral OEMs.

"High function and performance I/O software is a major strategic business for Adaptec; and optical recording technology, the key to CD-R and DVD, will play a big part in that effort," said S. Sundaresh, Adaptec vice president and general manager of the Personal I/O business unit. "We will support customers of both products," Sundaresh continued. "CD-R is poised to move into the mainstream. With this new technology, we're in an even better position to deliver the software solutions the new market demands."

"Our strategic vision is to move forward in pursuing our interests in the field of productivity application software and the vast opportunities presented by the Java-based operating system.

Delphi Language Pack & Delphi Translation Suite Ease Development of Localized Applications

SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. -- July 9, 1996 -- Borland International Inc. today announced two new tools for translating Delphi applications into international languages, the Delphi Language Pack and the Delphi Translation Suite. These tools provide an integrated and powerful way to localize Delphi applications into Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish.

"These translation tools use the same technology that Borland uses to localize our own products for international markets," said Zack Urlocker, Borland's director of Delphi Product Management. "By taking advantage of these tools, Delphi developers can easily offer their applications in many different languages -- without having to start from scratch each time. It truly opens up a global marketplace for their software."

Delphi 2.0 is Borland's 32-bit, Windows 95 and Windows NT family of high-performance, visual component-based, rapid application development (RAD) tools. Introduced in March, Delphi 2.0 is the industry's fastest-growing RAD environment -- winning awards and customer praise due to its suite of powerful client and server development tools that enable large corporations and government organizations to build robust, scalable applications in shorter amounts of time.

Delphi Language Pack
The Delphi Language Pack includes already-translated system messages for Delphi's Visual Component Libraries (VCLs) and Borland Database Engine (BDE), as well as translated message templates for Delphi forms, dialogs, and menus. It also includes the Delphi Language Manager that allows developers to safely and easily switch between languages. The Delphi Language Pack gives developers a quick and easy head-start in creating fully localized applications.

Delphi Translation Suite
The Delphi Translation Suite is a complete localization solution for corporate developers, ISVs, VARs, and system integrators who need to deliver larger-scale applications internationally with a more thorough translation than the Delphi Language Pack can provide. The suite can help translate new or existing applications, and includes all the functionality of the Delphi Language Pack -- plus a comprehensive suite of powerful development tools to automate and test the translation process, all from a single codebase.

Developers using the Delphi Translation Suite will receive many time, cost, quality and safety advantages from the product's table-based design. Any new application enhancements or bug-fixes also apply immediately to all translated versions. The developer's translation staff do not need to be technical to do the localization, and cannot access or modify the application's source code -- ensuring greater security. The Suite's GUI conversion features allow the translator to preview how the translation will appear, avoiding message truncation problems and pick letter duplicates. Most importantly, all of the work that the Delphi Translation Suite does is designed to be re-usable: As new versions of applications are created, only the new or changed items need to be translated -- greatly reducing localization time and costs for the developer.

Pricing and Availability
The Delphi Language Pack and Delphi Translation Suite are scheduled to be available later this quarter from Borland. The Delphi Language Pack is priced at $199.95, and the price for the Delphi Translation Suite is $3,499.95. Special introductory pricing is available for customers who place orders before September 30, 1996. For more information or to place orders, customers can call Borland at 800-233-2444. All prices are in US dollars and apply only in the United States and Canada.

166-, 150-MHz Pentium Processors Deliver High Performance for Mass Appeal

SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 10, 1996 -- Intel Corporation today introduced a 200-MHz Pentium® processor that will power premium desktop systems in the second half of this year. The processorís introduction creates a trio of high-performance choices -- 200 MHz, 166 MHz, and 150 MHz -- that have been introduced in the first half of this year for high-end to mainstream PCs. The announcement today also sets the stage for the 133- and 120-MHz Pentium processors to fill the entry level of Intelís PC processor family in the second half.

ďSystem manufacturers will be offering customers an unprecedented level of performance and value,Ē said Carl Everett, senior vice president, Desktop Products Group at Intel. Everett noted the home market segment will benefit from the performance available in the Pentium processor family. A good example is the recently introduced Intel Video Phone with ProShare® technology which allows callers to view each other on PCs using standard telephone lines.

Everett added that while 200-MHz Pentium processor-based systems represent a new performance milestone for the Pentium processor family, 166- and 150-MHz Pentium processor-based systems will be prominent in PC buyersí minds for the outstanding prices and performance values they represent.

The 200-MHz Pentium processor, built on Intelís advanced .35 micron process technology, is in limited production today, and will ramp in volume over the next two quarters. The processor is housed in a new, more thermally efficient Plastic Pin Grid Array (PPGA) package. This, combined with the advanced process technology, enables the processor to reach its high clock rates.

High-speed Pentium processors will continue to be the choice for users of Windows* 95, especially in the home market segment where multimedia and highly graphic software demand and benefit from higher performance. Business users, in the meantime, are moving to the 32-bit software environments offered by Windows NT and UNIX, and selecting Pentium® Pro processors for their computing needs.

The 200-MHz Pentium processor delivers 5.47 SPECint95 and SPECint_base95, and 3.68 SPECfp95 and 2.92SPECfp_base95. The iCOMP Index 2.0 rating is 142.

In 1,000-unit quantities, the 200-MHz-Pentium processor is priced at $599.
Intel, the worldís largest chip maker, is also a leading manufacturer of personal computer, networking, and communications products.

Intel Extends Virus Protection to Windows NT

Adding to Intelís NetWare* Capabilities, LANDesk® Virus Protect v1.6 for Windows NT Servers Provides Real-time Scanning Services

HILLSBORO, Ore., June 10, 1996 -- Intel Corporation today announced the availability of LANDesk® Virus Protect v1.6 for Windows NT Servers. The new product provides real-time scanning services to increase the virus security and stability of Intel architecture-based servers, while extending Intelís proven virus-protection technology to the Windows NT environment.

LANDesk Virus Protect v1.6 continues Intelís work to increase the effectiveness and reduce the support costs of networked PCs, extending the power of Intel architecture systems across the LAN.

ďAs a vital pressure point in networks, servers represent both a requirement and an opportunity to gain control through better management,Ē said Ed Ekstrom, general manager of Intelís Network Products Division. ďThis version of LANDesk Virus Protect extends Intelís virus protection to Windows NT servers, delivering further on Intelís commitment to be the leading provider of management solutions for the Intel architecture.Ē

LANDesk Virus Protect v1.6 for Windows NT uses server-based technology to provide centralized virus protection of vital data as it passes through the server, preventing viruses from being passed on to client workstations. Real-time scanning continuously safeguards against polymorphic, stealth, Macro and other viruses as files are sent to the server. The product, which can detect viruses in compressed files, also allows on-demand or scheduled scans.

An extension of Intelís industry-proven virus protection for Novell NetWare*, LANDesk Virus Protect v1.6 provides a streamlined feature set that allows customers to quickly and easily add Intel virus protection for Windows NT servers. As customers add Windows NT application servers to their environments, they can deploy LANDesk Virus Protect v1.6 to protect those servers using the same scanning capabilities present in Intelís virus protection product for NetWare. LAN administrators also can, in one step, automatically download free virus pattern updates from Intelís BBS to provide protection from the newest virus threats. To simplify customer administration, LANDesk Virus Protect for Windows NT servers will use the same virus pattern updates as for NetWare.

Pricing and Availability

LANDesk Virus Protect v1.6 for Windows NT Servers, available June 18, is priced at $995 (U.S. suggested list) for a single-server license, $2,985 for a four-server license, and $9,950 for a 20-server license. A 45-day free preview of LANDesk Virus Protect v1.6 will continue to be available from Intelís site on the World Wide Web. This and other Intel network products are available worldwide through a network of distributors and value-added resellers.
