Sapotek Unveils Free Web-Based Desktop Available to All

Desktoptwo Is a Virtual PC, Accessible From Any Device With an Internet Connection

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 7, 2006 -- Sapotek Inc., the company that created the first Web-based desktop of its kind in Spanish, Computadora.de (http://www.computadora.de), today announced the launch of a new, enhanced version of its world class desktop in English, Desktoptwo (http://www.desktoptwo.com). Building on the success of Computadora.de, which has generated well over 100,000 subscriptions from around the world, Desktoptwo will expand Sapotek's global reach by allowing anyone with access to the Internet to have a free web-based desktop for managing personal information, online document collaboration, interactive communication, music and more.

"The Internet continues to evolve into a robust platform for programs, applications and other services," said Joshua Rand, CEO and co-founder of Sapotek. "But the applications and services that we're looking for are often in different locations, so web surfing can be confusing. With Desktoptwo, we have placed most of the vital programs and applications that people use everyday in one easy-to-use and familiar interface, the desktop, so users can have their own home on the Internet, which is why we say that with Desktoptwo, you can bring your desktop too."

Desktoptwo "mimics" the look, feel and functionality of a local PC and includes the following features:

--  Email -- Import all your accounts into your web mail
--  Instant Messenger -- Compatible with other services
--  Hard Drive -- Save, backup or share your files and access them from
    anywhere
--  Address book -- Search and exchange addresses, even with users of
    other systems
--  Blog creator -- Let the world know about you and even include music
    and pictures from Desktoptwo onto your blog
--  Message Boards -- Talk to other users about anything and everything
--  MP3 player -- Store and play your favorite tunes from anywhere
--  Internal and external search -- Find that message from months ago
    
… and much more.

There are also word processing, spreadsheet and presentation programs that allow for file sharing and full online document collaboration so that users can work on documents simultaneously, even if in different locations, making Desktoptwo a truly global community.
