Any suggestions ? today's idea TUESDAY: GEN MAGIC INC (Nasdaq:GMGC) no options at 4 7/8 That's why I was intrigued to read that General Magic has just acquired NetPhonic Communications, the maker of Web-On-Call, which is basically a "voice browser" giving you voice-synthesized information from any Web site through a touch-tone telephone (a demo is available at netphonic.com). General Magic intends to incorporate this voice browser into its forthcoming Serengeti product, due out this year, which promises to integrate voice mail, Email, faxes, address books, and calendars through a natural language voice user interface genmagic.com. Technology Advancement of the Year 'Perhaps one of the most unusual and innovative palmtops available is the REX. This diminutive device is the size of a PC card and for good reason -- the organizer is designed to actually fit into the PC card slot on a PC or laptop computer.'' Starfish conceived, designed and developed REX. The core technology building blocks used to develop REX are part of the Starfish TrueSync Technology Platform (see related release from August 7, 1997). Starting in 1994, Starfish developed the TrueSync Technology Platform to provide a technology foundation capable of delivering leading-edge products and services in a rapidly changing Connected Information Device market. Connected Information Devices include pagers, cellular phones, PC Companions, palmtop PCs and other devices that are capable of seamlessly synchronizing information with desktop computers and specialized servers. Starfish works closely with leading device manufacturers and cellular, paging and telecommunications operators to develop complete, customized solutions built on the Starfish TrueSync Technology Platform. Motorola (NYSE: MOT - news), Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HWP - news), General Magic (NASDAQ:GMGC - news) and Franklin Electronic Publishers (NYSE: FEP - news) are among Starfish's partners. Founded in 1994, Starfish is privately held with headquarters in Scotts Valley, California. More information can be found at www.starfish.com.
