The Mac utility designed especially for iBook and PoweBook users

SAN FRANCISCO - January 5, 2000: Tired of fumbling with the trackpad to open files? Wish you could spend less time navigating with the hockey puck mouse? Use MindControl(tm)!

MindVision Software announced MindControl 1.0, along with a contest for MindControl users, at MacWorld Expo today. MindVision will give away an iBook and other prizes in the "How I use MindControl" contest.

The latest release in a new family of consumer utilities, MindControl helps people work faster, organize important items and give the trackpad a rest.

"MindVision utilities simplify everyday tasks," said Steve Kiene, MindVision CEO. "With MindExpander, we took the mystery out of file expansion. Now we introduce MindControl to make PowerBooks and iBooks easier to use."

MindControl makes it easy to open applications, documents, folders, server volumes and URLs in a few quick keystrokes. With MindControl, you spend less time navigating and more time working.

Along with saving time, MindControl saves valuable screen space. Unlike launcher utilities, MindControl stays out of the way until you need it. Until then, MindControl uses absolutely no screen real estate. Once it finishes its job, MindControl steps out of the way.

MindControl only costs $19.95 and you can try out all its features before buying. To download the demonstration version, visit MindVision Tools. When you're ready to purchase, the program can do it for you.

Use MindControl to quickly:
* open frequently used applications or documents
* visit favorite web sites
* create and address new e-mail messages
* switch between applications
* switch between open windows in an application
* tell your Macintosh to restart, shut down or enter sleep mode
* launch AppleScripts to automate your Mac
* open Finder selected documents with a specific application
* open desktop items with a wildcard character
* unmount/eject volumes

MindControl is the first product to use MindVision's new electronic software delivery system. The "Buy MindControl" menu command will establish an Internet connection and walk you through an online purchase without leaving the program. You'll be using a registered version in a few minutes.


Got a cool way to use MindControl? MindVision wants to know about it. Enter the "How I use MindControl" contest for a chance to win an iBook!

Enter a tip on how you get the most from MindControl. Or enter an AppleScript that you run from MindControl. We'll review all submissions and post approved ones on the contest web site.

Contest ends March 31, 2000. See the web site for official rules and more information.
