    • FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:Yuvee Introduces Two Products at MIT’s Emerging Technologies Conference in Bostonon September 29-30 That Make Consumer Electronics Easy for the Everyday Person.September 22, 2004, Chicago, Illinois. Yuvee will showcase its technology at the MIT EmergingTechnologies Conference, having been selected by a panel of industry experts as one of the leadinginnovators of 2004. Yuvee’s advanced manual interfaces give the user control over all aspects of thetechnology they buy, with no complicated manuals and advanced training.Mobile phones and other consumer electronics come packed with advanced features. For instance, mobilephones alone take and send photos, send text messages, transmit email and play games, make phone calls,keep your address book and calendar, and act as answering machines. Soon they will play movies andmusic, and give full access to the Internet.But how do people use all these features? Most people don’t. They pay a lot for them, and they get a thickmanual and websites full of supporting information. They try hard to learn some of the features, succeedafter time with a few and give up on most. They get frustrated and angry, and lose hours and hours of time.Why? Because the technology is badly designed.Yuvee’s solutions, an advanced keypad that works for every device and a stylus-size joystick with memory,change that. Tim Higginson, founder and president of Yuvee, states: “With our technology, any devicemanufacturer, software provider and service provider can build usability into their products right from thestart. We’ve done our homework on how to make things easy for people, and we’re supplying the solutionsto the technology community.”Distinguishing features of our keypad include: (1) easy, fast and intuitive entry of text, symbols andcommands; (2) works with all devices, including mobile phones, PCs, laptops and home entertainmentsystems, so users need to learn only one easy set of controls for all their devices; (3) displays at a click of abutton just what the user needs in order to do whatever it is that the user is trying to do; (4) works directlyin any language at a click by the user (including easy Chinese text entry directly by brushstroke); and (5) isfully wireless and mobile (you can use your computer from your easy chair, leaning back at your desk oranywhere else). In fact, the Yuvee keypad is more powerful than the full-size PC keyboard, and fits in thepalm of the hand and built-into a mobile phone.Distinguishing features of the joystick are: (1) a stylus-size joystick with memory; (2) full mouse and gamecontrols, even on your mobile phone; and (3) instant install and play of any media, game or content.Availability: Yuvee is currently working on licenses to mobile phone manufacturers. The keypad andjoystick should be available for sale directly to consumers in 2005 to replace the PC keyboard for use withtheir PCs and to replace their remote controls for their home entertainment systems.About Yuvee, Inc.: Yuvee is an early-stage technology company whose focus is to make consumerelectronics easy to use.
