Mark Thomas From Microsoft and Gary Cornell From Apress to Be Featured on Let's Talk Computers ®

NASHVILLE, TN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 10, 2005 -- Guests from Microsoft and Apress will appear on radio talk show "Let's Talk Computers." Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) is the worldwide leader in software, services, and solutions that help people and businesses realize their full potential. Apress' unique approach to publishing was developed from conversations between best-selling authors, for and programmers, Gary Cornell and Dan Appleman.

In this first of two parts, Product Manager for Microsoft Consumer Security, Mark Thomas discusses the new "Web Watchers" initiative. Web Watchers is a program sponsored by Microsoft, AMD and other leading technology companies that is directed at U.S. kids in grades three through eight. The program was created to bring awareness to children about the dangers of the Internet and what they can do to keep themselves out of harm's way -- such as how to help protect their identity online and how to avoid installing malicious software.

Apress' unique approach to publishing developed from conversations between best-selling authors and programmers, Gary Cornell and Dan Appleman. In this interview, Gary Cornell, the publisher and CEO, examines eCommerce, eBooks, and Apress' "search within the book" feature. Apress.com is now selling many of its indispensable titles as eBooks, to offer IT professionals worldwide a variety of ways to stay at the forefront of technology. Offered in PDF format, these portable, affordable, and searchable eBooks are the perfect electronic companions to printed books. According to Cornell, Apress will launch its "search within the book" feature later in 2005.
