MindVision Offers Fast, FREE, Flexible File Expander
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- January 5, 1999
MindVision Software shipped the preview release of MindExpander(tm), a FREEapplication that automatically expands .sit, .sea, .bin and .hqx files at MacWorld Expo today. "MindExpander is about choice, openness, innovation, and competition in an area of the Mac market that has been characterized by a lack of options and closed proprietary standards. We wanted to develop a free application that took the guesswork and hassle out of expanding a file. Our ultimate goal is to help make file expansion a seamless process," said MindVision CEO Steve Kiene. MindExpander expands standard Internet files and helps users get to the files they're downloading sooner and with less hassle. MindExpander is smaller, runs faster, and uses less memory than other decompression programs. The first of a new family of consumer utilities, MindExpander gives Mac users a new freedom of choice.
According to Kiene, "The Internet is an incredible resource for the millions of people now online. But with all of its benefits, the Internet creates just as many frustrations. Downloading compressed files is one of the biggest. MindExpander can eliminate most of that confusion."
Throughout the month of January, anyone who downloads MindExpander can register to win MindVision's FREE Volkswagen iBeetle. MindVision is showing the iBeetle at MacWorld Expo booth #2511. The iBeetle will be given away in a drawing at the end of the month.
