Corker Capital Group's Entertainment Stocks for March 14, 2005

NOTE TO EDITORS: The Following Is an Investment Opinion Being Issued by The Corker Capital Group, LLC.

ATLANTA, GA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 14, 2005 -- Corker Capital Group announces the following stocks to its Stock Market Standouts List: Silver Screen Studios, Inc. (OTC BB: SSSU), Apple Computer (NASDAQ: AAPL), Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT), Intel(NASDAQ: INTC).

CCG continues its coverage of the entertainment industry with coverage of:

Silver Screen Studios, Inc. (OTC BB: SSSU), www.silverscreenstudiogroup.com, the Atlanta, GA based urban digital content provider is readying its second feature film, "Tha Music Gamez." Casting will take place in Atlanta, GA in March 2005. SSS has reserved the domain name www.wsssg-tv.com for the Silver Screen Media Network that will go active in March 2005. SSSU has updated its website with a sneak preview of "Murder by Deception," www.murderbydeception.com. We see SSSU growing rapidly during 2005 with the production of its second feature film and the activation of the Silver Screen Media Network. We are attractive on Silver Screen Studios.

Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT). The software maker and dominant player in the desktop computer market is seeking to extend its power position to the mobile computer market. Microsoft and Apple are readying to go head to head in the digital music space. Apple has the I-Pod and is clearly the dominant player in the digital music space. Microsoft has WMV 10 Player and is seeking to make this the industry standard for digital music. Seems like déjà vu circa 1980 again. Who will win the pocketbooks of the 21st-century consumer? We are attractive on Microsoft.

Apple Computer (NASDAQ: AAPL) Shares of digital video recorder technology pioneer TiVo were up for a second straight session Thursday amid speculation that Apple Computer may be mulling a takeover of the company, but pulled back from their intraday high. The Cupertino, Calif., company dropped the price on the iPod mini, which comes with four gigabytes of storage capable of holding 1,500 songs, to $199 from $249. Last month, Apple introduced an even less expensive gadget, the $99 iPod shuffle, but that model holds fewer songs and doesn't have a screen, as the iPod mini does. We are attractive on Apple.

Intel (NASDAQ: INTC). Intel Corp. said it agreed to buy Oplus Technologies Inc., a closely held company in Israel, as part of the chip giant's push into the digital-TV market. Terms weren't disclosed. But a person familiar with the situation put the transaction around $100 million. Oplus, a 100-employee firm founded in 1993, competes with companies such as Pixelworks Inc. and Genesis Microchip Inc. in making chips that process video signals in televisions and related products. While continuing to sell products under its current brand, Oplus will help Intel develop chips for products like digital set-top-boxes, digital-media recorders and digital televisions, Intel said. We are attractive on Intel.
