Audio, Video News & Podcast Search Added to Rocketnews.com

RANCHO MIRAGE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 16, 2006 -- Rocketinfo Inc. (OTC BB: RKTI) today announced that its popular Rocketnews portal and current news search engine rocketnews.com has been upgraded with powerful new audio and video news and podcast search functionality. The beta addition of video and podcast content will further position Rocketnews as the world's premier destination for free and uncensored up to the minute news from around the globe.

The addition of audio, video and podcast content to the RocketNews portal and search engine is designed to give Rocketnews users search-based access to an even wider range of news content. "RocketNews is the primary destination of choice for anyone interested in accessing all the world's news all the time," said Content Director Martin Thornell. "We already have the planet's most comprehensive database of current news sources, along with a huge database of popular and dynamic blogs. It's a natural move for us to extend our offering to include an equally extensive collection of audio and video content."

The video and podcast content accessible on Rocketnews is aggregated from authoritative news outlets such as CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN, Reuters, and the BBC, along with thousands of online audio news sources and podcasts. Visitors to the Rocketnews portal can now search for news, blog, audio, video and podcast content. The Company has also created a simple taxonomy that gives users the ability to narrow their searches to content from business, technology, health, sports and entertainment sources. Rocketinfo will continue to aggressively grow its audio, video and podcast databases.

In addition to the ability to search for video news and podcast content, the Rocketnews portal will also feature top video and podcast headlines from selected sources. The addition of these new formats and search functionality will allow Rocketinfo to continue providing the world free and unbiased access, through rocketnews.com, to the planet's largest and most diverse collection of current news sources and weblog content. Rocketinfo continuously searches and indexes over 16,000 Internet sites, 70,000 RSS and weblog sources as well as client defined content channels.
