Wow, I can't believe my eyes! 'A day in the life" of XTND with no change? Will wonders ever cease? Every stock deserves a day off, I guess.

Motorola Selects Extended Systems to Provide Bluetooth Transport Software
OBEX and IrMC software protocols to enable wireless file exchange and synchronization
BOISE, Idaho--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 9, 2000-- Extended Systems (Nasdaq: XTND), a leading provider of mobile data management and short-range wireless connectivity solutions, and Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT), a leader in the wireless communications industry, have joined forces to implement Bluetooth(TM) transport technology in Motorola products.

Under a license agreement, Extended Systems provides Motorola with a software kit, which enables Bluetooth wireless file exchange and synchronization.

Key components include Object Exchange (OBEX) and Mobile Communications (IrMC) modules, which are designed to facilitate wireless file exchange and data synchronization. These modules provide a high-level application protocol interface (API) to standard applications, which enables users to exchange and synchronize data between wireless devices. Because Extended Systems' software kit features a multi-transport OBEX module, Motorola can develop products that support wireless or wired transports -- including Bluetooth, infrared and serial -- within the same device.

"Extended Systems is proud to team with Motorola to bring Bluetooth solutions to the marketplace," said Extended Systems president and CEO Steve Simpson. "We believe our SDK (software development kit) forms a foundation for innovative, new products based on Bluetooth technology."

"Bluetooth wireless technology is going to significantly enhance the way people communicate and access information," said John Brown, vice president and director of Motorola Urbana Software Operations. "Our relationship with Extended Systems helps to lead us down the path to delivering end-to-end Bluetooth solutions to our customers."

This is the third agreement between Motorola and Extended Systems that focuses on implementing short-range wireless connectivity across Motorola's communications product line. It began with Motorola's L7089 tri-band GSM cellular phone, followed by Motorola's Timeport(TM) P935 personal interactive communicator for mobile business users. In both cases, Motorola licensed Extended Systems' IrDA-(Infrared Data Association) compliant infrared software technology enabling users to exchange data with other IrDA-compliant devices.

In 1994, Extended Systems helped found the Infrared Data Association where it authored the original specification for OBEX. Extended Systems co-authored(a) the specifications for IrMC, a universal standard for data synchronization. Both models were later incorporated into the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) specifications for embedded devices.

About Bluetooth

The Bluetooth(TM) wireless technology is set to transform the personal connectivity market by providing freedom from wired connections. It is a specification for a small-form factor, low-cost radio solution providing links between mobile computers, mobile phones, other portable devices, and to the Internet. The Bluetooth SIG, comprised of leaders in the telecommunications, computing, and network industries, is driving development of the technology and bringing it to market. The Bluetooth SIG includes promoter companies: 3Com, Ericsson, IBM, Intel, Lucent, Microsoft, Motorola, Nokia, and Toshiba, and 1790 adopter companies. More information about the Bluetooth wireless technology and the Bluetooth SIG is available at www.bluetooth.com

O.T. Wondering if anyone can answer an investment question for me. A usual stock above $5.00 can be purchased on margin with the requirement that 35% must be cash in your account. Some stocks are rated at 50%, 70%, or even 100%. This is the case with XTND for instance. In other words you cannot purchase XTND on margin. Is this correct everyone? This brings up my next question. Who puts this margin rating on a stock and why? Is it based strictly on its volatility or is it also based on its return on equity and other factors? I would welcome responses from knowledgable investors. Thanks.
Lee
