IDS Informed Media Campaign in Wall Street Journal for HLS Biometric Encryption Products Appeared Today

HLS Releasing World's 1st Vista Compatible Biometric Encryption Devices

ORLANDO, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 29, 2006 -- IDS Worldwide, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: IDWD) -- HLS has informed IDS that today was the beginning of a long-term, multi-media campaign featuring the world's 1st Vista™ compatible biometric encryption flash drives and computer mouse. The campaign began today with the Wall Street Journal in their Southeast and Northwest Regions, one day before Microsoft™ releases its new Vista™ operating system to government and business customers, HLS and its worldwide marketing and distribution partner Worldwide Security Acquisitions, LLC (WSA).

Earlier today, regarding Microsoft's release of its new Vista™ operating system (its 1st new release since 2001), it was reported that Microsoft spent $7 billion and 5 years in research and development to create this new operating system. Microsoft used 5 million Beta testers on this project, and it is projected that approximately 100 million computers will switch to the Vista operating system in 2007.

This 100 million Vista™ users is significant because currently, HLS biometric encryption flash drives and biometric encryption mouse as reported today in the Wall Street Journal are the only Vista™ compatible biometric encryption devices available in the market.

HLS and WSA will be issuing a joint press release December 1, 2006, announcing major strategic agreements regarding acquisitions, investments and product development and the addition of some of the top leading biometric and Vista software experts in the country.
