    Hallo PC/GEOS Freunde

    in den letzten 16 Jahren habe ich SEHR VIEL zu PC/GEOS, Geoworks, MyTurn, NewDeal, Breadbox etc. im Internet, UseNet, Fidonet, Zeitschriften, auf Datenträgern geforscht.

    VIELLEICHT finde ich, trotz schwerer Erkrankung, die Zeit & Kraft, HIER einiges davon im Laufe der Zeit zu veröffentlichen. Da sicher nur wenige Einzelpersonen Interesse an diesen veralteten Infos haben, beschränke ich mich stets auf diesen Beitragsstrang.Da NICHTS im Internet Ewig vorgehalten wird, bitte ich die Interessenten hiervon Sicherheitskopien auf ihren Datenträgern zu machen.

    Bitte erwartet keine Sensationen am laufenden Band. Das meiste Material ist Geschichtlich wenig relevant.

    "Since the votes cast were overwhelmingly in favor of the company's
    proposals to sell its UK professional services business and to liquidate, we

    numerous mailings and phone calls," said Steve Mitchell, president and CEO of
    the company. "We thank those shareholders who did return their ballots and
    our proxy solicitors for all of their efforts. The company must now rapidly
    assess its alternatives, including seeking bankruptcy protection."

    Geoworks Corporation, a publicly traded U.S. corporation with additional offices in the UK and Japan, is proud to participate in the dynamic wireless Internet and the telecommunications industry along with the member companies represented in the WAP Forum. We are also proud of our heritage of developing user interface technology for resource limited devices like smart phones, and server technology platforms for wireless e-commerce.

    In the early 1990's, Geoworks invented a unique process for designing generic user interfaces for application programs, enabling the same application to run on a broad range of platforms. User interface technology provides the screen environment in many electronic devices such as mobile phones and PDA's. Today you see this technology in the market in such devices as the Nokia Communicator family of smart phones.

    The Geoworks process was described and patented in U.S. Patent No. 5,327,529, which issued on July 5, 1994. The patent provides Geoworks with rights and legal protection in the United States and Japan through July 5, 2011. A portion of the technology described in the Geoworks patent, which is referred to as the "Flex UI Patent," has been realized in the implementation of the Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) and the corresponding Wireless Markup Language (WML). The Wireless Application Protocol is the de facto worldwide standard for the presentation and delivery of wireless information and telephony services on mobile phones and other wireless terminals.

    In May of 1999, in accordance with the charter documents governing WAP Forum members, Geoworks was the first member to notify the WAP Forum that its patented technology rights represented "Essential Intellectual Property Rights" (Essential IPR) realized in the implementation of the WAP Specification. Accordingly, the WAP Forum published the Geoworks declaration of Essential IPR for worldwide circulation in the member's section of its website at Other member companies have similarly notified the WAP Forum of their Essential IPR. The commercial implications of a WAP Forum member company declaring Essential IPR were anticipated during the formation of the WAP Forum and resulted in a recommended protocol whereby the declaring member company would license its technology to other members on fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory commercial terms.

    In order to meet the commercial needs of WAP Forum members, Geoworks has designed a comprehensive licensing program available to all members and outlined this program in a white paper entitled: "The Geoworks Wireless Internet Patent: Invention And Innovation In Flexible User Interface Technology"

    For more information about the Geoworks licensing program, please contact the Geoworks' Legal Department.

    Company Supports One, Open Standard For Wireless/Internet Communications

    ALAMEDA, Calif. (January 19, 2000) - Geoworks Corporation (NASDAQ: GWRX), a pioneer in wireless data communications services and technologies, today announced it has officially informed the WAP Forum and its members that it holds essential Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) for the Wireless Application Protocol (WAP), and the Wireless Markup Language (WML) Specification, and has established a licensing program to make this IPR available to all WAP Forum members. In May of 1999, Geoworks, in accordance with WAP Forum guidelines, was the first WAP member to announce its patented technology is employed as essential technology in the WAP standard. In accordance with the WAP Forum's IPR protocol, Geoworks has now informed all WAP Forum members that it is pursuing licensing of its patented technology on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms and conditions.

    The Geoworks patent for invention of a flexible user interface for mobile communications devices (US Patent #5,327,529) is potentially implicated by products and services based on the WAP specification. Geoworks holds this patent for devices, including mobile phones, which are based on the WAP specification and placed into the stream of commerce in the United States and Japan.

    According to Boston-based industry analysts The Yankee Group, more than 52 million WAP handsets are expected to be shipped in the United States by 2004. In Japan, IDO and DDI already support the WAP standard and NTT DoCoMo, the world's largest wireless carrier, has announced its intention to support WAP.

    "As part of our support for WAP and a single industry standard, Geoworks is happy to make its proprietary technology available to all members of the WAP Forum," said Dave Grannan, President and CEO of Geoworks Corporation. "We will be actively working with all members to ensure that they have fair rights to our technology."

    Geoworks is dedicated to driving a single, open standard for WAP to accelerate the worldwide market for mobile devices that can easily and instantly access and interact with information and services.

    "We have been studying the intellectual property, financial liability, and licensing issues carefully with an experienced team of advisors for quite some time," said Don Ezzell, General Counsel of Geoworks Corporation. "Our objective is to handle technology royalties in the businesslike manner proposed by the WAP Forum, and we believe our comprehensive licensing program is the right approach."

    Geoworks has already entered licensing discussions with several key WAP Forum members. The WAP Forum is the industry association that has developed the de facto world standard for wireless information and telephony services on digital mobile phones and other wireless terminals. Member companies include Ericsson Mobile Communications AB, Intel, Microsoft, Motorola Limited, Nokia Mobile Phones, Inc., and QUALCOMM Inc., among 200 other member companies around the world.

    Geoworks has posted on its web site ( a white paper entitled "The Geoworks Wireless Internet Patent: Invention and Innovation in Flexible User Interface Technology." The white paper details many issues of interest to WAP Forum members and non-members, including licensing details, legal issues and technical information.

    The Birth of a Communications Medium

    By David Grannan, CEO and President of Geoworks

    Medium (n.): 1. A means or instrument by which something is conveyed or accomplished; 2. A means or channel of communication, information or entertainment (Webster's Dictionary)

    If you could have predicted the emergence of the Internet ten years ago, how would you have improved it? Maybe you envision a medium that is more personal, more responsive, more relevant. Or maybe the perfect Internet is one that is not confined to the desktops and bound by the wires of your PC. You probably envision a medium that provides instant access to your most valuable information and constant communication with the people and services that matter most to you; and the Internet no longer lives up to your expectations.

    Welcome to the mobile Internet. Seamless access to information, contacts, shopping, entertainment, communication and more - all in a device that weighs less than five ounces. With the development of enhanced wireless technology based on the Wireless Application Protocol (WAP), consumers are just beginning to realize the full potential of this anytime, anywhere access to information. And other exciting developments are on their way. A tiny embedded MP3 chip will enable people to download music and play it directly from their mobile devices. Mobile consumers will make vending machine purchases, pay parking meters and open security gates with handsets enhanced with short-wave radio technology. A discount from your favorite deli will appear on your screen, not because your cell phone number got on a marketing list but because it's lunchtime and your mobile device reveals that you are just two blocks away. The advent of the wireless Internet has dramatically and permanently shifted the paradigm of personal communications and instant information retrieval.

    With nearly 600 million mobile subscribers worldwide, most of who currently use their mobile devices specifically for voice communication, wireless communications has achieved deep consumer penetration without tapping into its full potential as a comprehensive and dynamic information medium. In the next three years, the number of mobile devices worldwide will reach one billion, far surpassing the number of Internet users worldwide. This explosion in the wireless industry means that a majority of new Internet users worldwide will have their first experience accessing the Internet via a mobile device.

    Wireless Devices - Just Phones Without Cords? Mobile communication technology has been used for decades by professionals whose jobs depended on their ability to be reached while they were in the field, such as truck drivers and law enforcement officials.

    During the past decade, mobile devices have proliferated among business professionals whose mobile jobs necessitated constant accessibility. These professionals have to a large extent driven the evolution of wireless technology with their demands for smaller, more compact devices and more comprehensive service areas. However, the emergence of wireless technology as a viable and dynamic communications medium will only be realized with a fundamental shift in the way consumers perceive their mobile devices.

    Already, across Europe and Asia, consumers and business professionals of all ages rely on their mobile devices as personal productivity tools. Take Finland, the home to many of the world's leaders in wireless communications, for example. In Finland, more than eighty percent of teenagers between the ages of 12 and 20 carry mobile devices. Many mobile youths rely on their phones or pagers for e-mail, chat services and entertainment. Professionals depend on their mobile devices for flight schedules, stock trading and commerce.

    These dynamic applications are just beginning to emerge in the United States. As the wireless industry, both domestically and worldwide, develops the new technologies and services that will drive wireless communications forward, success will be largely dependent on the education of mobile consumers about the spectrum of feasible wireless content and services available to them. It will also depend on marketers' willingness to embrace the mobile medium as a viable channel through which to target advertising.

    New Models for Communication and Interaction

    Think for a moment about the birth of the television age, during which the natural tendency was to create programming that followed the prescribed pattern for the more established radio medium. The first time television networks produced the nightly news, the cameraman simply pointed the cameras at the anchorman as he read the news with his eyes on the sheets before him. However, television's innovators quickly realized that the new television medium required that they dramatically rethink their manner of communicating with viewers.

    A similar parallel can be drawn to the evolution of the Internet into the interactive communications, entertainment and commerce tool that it has become. When Internet innovators developed its infrastructure, their primary intention was to create a tool that could advance communication and research across academic institutions. Even in the early nineties when a broad consumer audience began to use the Internet, people viewed it as a speedy version of postal mail. Only in the past three years have consumers begun to mimic online their lifestyle and activities offline by using the Internet for entertainment, shopping and personal productivity.
    Marketing Over the Mobile Medium

    As mass consumer penetration of the mobile medium occurs, the wireless industry is poised to explode in a multitude of directions, with services and products that will delight the user with their relevance and suitability to mobile lifestyles. No communications tool until the mobile device has ever simultaneously offered people customizable, personal, interactive and portable information.

    Whether consumers will be willing to pay for the kind of content and services that will be offered through the wireless medium is still debatable. Historical examples from the emergence of the television and Internet media indicate that consumers are willing to pay for access, such as cable or ISP fees, but have in general shied away from paying for specific content. Instead, advertising budgets enable people to watch their favorite sitcoms or surf their preferred Web sites.

    As the mobile medium becomes a more viable advertising and marketing tool, it is likely that consumers will continue to demand a greater spectrum of quality content and services on their mobile devices. Certainly, they will be willing to pay for comprehensive coverage areas and the next generation of WAP-enabled handsets. However, past new media trends indicate that they will gladly respond to advertising on their mobile devices in return for customized, relevant and free content.

    To an extent, then, it is up to advertisers and marketers to drive the future evolution of the wireless communications medium. First, marketers must recognize wireless devices as viable channels through which to reach target audiences. But more importantly, these marketers must adjust to the new medium and begin targeting their potential customers in a manner unlike any current advertising model. To be consistent with the nature of the mobile medium, any marketing targeted toward wireless channels must be customizable, personal, interactive and portable as well.

    With specific, relevant and actionable marketing messages, both marketers and mobile consumers will benefit. Advertisers will form deeper, more interactive relationships with their target customers, the kind of relationships that result in brand loyalty and purchasing decisions. And mobile consumers will grow to rely on their mobile devices as essential personal tools that enable a deeper, more interactive level of communication than they've ever experienced through their wired telephone, television, radio or Internet connection.

    Only then will the wireless medium grow beyond its infancy and become a central and indispensable channel of communication, information and entertainment - the ultimate communications medium.
