Conduits Technologies, Inc. Releases Timekeeper 1.0 for Pocket PC.

TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA, May 9, 2001 -- Conduits Technologies, Inc. 
announced today the release of Timekeeper 1.0 for Pocket PC. Timekeeper 
is a customizable high-resolution stopwatch.

Timekeeper offers a myriad of features and four modes of use - Count 
down/stop, Count down/repeat, Count down/up, and Count up.  Every mode 
allows the user to implement a customized skin to complement the 
activity at hand, and add up to 32 independent timers.  Also included 
are decorative skins to further personalize a timer, adding dynamic 
designs to activities as common as running a lap, boiling an egg, 
clocking a chess match, or timing a race.

Each timer will display all functions necessary to customizing a timer - 
such as indicating the exact amount of time to measure, preset times for 
ease-of-use, and on/off to stop or start a timer.  Also available are 
functions to start, stop or reset all timers simultaneously.  When a 
timer concludes, Timekeeper will alert the user with a flashing display 
and audible alert, and turning on the device if necessary.  All sounds 
are configurable by the user.

When timers are ascending, laps may be marked and counted, with the 
ability to export into Pocket Word or Pocket Excel.  Various skins 
display the current lap information of each timer.  Timekeeper can even 
bind to hardware buttons to trigger start, stop or lap functions.

Timekeeper supports and is bundled with user-configurable "Activities."  
Activities are ways to organize groups of settings where the user can 
specify the skin, timer modes, and preset times.  For instance, choosing 
the "Cook Breakfast" activity will load the kitchen-themed skin, set all 
the timers for Count Down mode and several cooking times (for Eggs, 
Bacon, etc.), and also populate the Preset Time display with other 
cooking times.

Timers can also function as mutually exclusive "pairs" - starting one 
timer will stop the adjacent timer.  This method is useful with the 
included Chess skin, when users are clocking a chess match.

Timekeeper 1.0 is available for $9.95 from http://www.conduits.com.  
More information, including a full list of features, downloadable skins, 
and screenshots, can be found at the Timekeeper website at 

Conduits develops many commercial applications for Pocket PC, including 
Pocket Artist (a drawing and image manipulation program for Pocket PC) 
and Pocket Album (an interactive photo album for Pocket PC).  Conduits 
also hosts several open source efforts, such as Pocket Spark.
