Rocketinfo Adds Directors and Management, Takes New Direction

IRVINE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 19, 2006 -- Gary Campbell, the Chief Executive Officer of Rocketinfo Inc. (OTC BB: RKTI), announced today the expansion of the Company's management team and board of directors.

"I am pleased to report that our search for a management team with a fresh approach to the RSS marketplace has concluded, and Rocketinfo wishes to welcome Mr. Randy Lutz as our new Chief Executive Officer," stated Mr. Campbell, "As well, Mr. Ray Welt has agreed to act as our Chief Financial Officer and Mr. Paul Eagland has agreed to join the Company as Executive Vice-President and Secretary. Messrs. Lutz, Welt and Eagland will also be joining the board." Accordingly, Gary Campbell, Mr. Stephen Spalding and Mr. Karl Harz have tendered their resignations as directors and/or officers effective immediately.

Mr. Lutz said, "RSS is a very intriguing technology in communications and marketing although, to date, its primary usage has been in the gathering of news for consumers. We see a considerable opportunity to expand the application of RSS in several fields, to direct the Company towards a revenue model that can arise as a result of providing customer-directed communication to general business, public and investor relations, marketing, competitive knowledge, video presentations and data tracking for producers and manufacturers. The consumer is inundated with unwanted information and we see a trend towards satisfying the consumer's needs by only providing information about products and services that the consumer wants. RSS is the key to that market need."

Further, Mr. Lutz said, "Gary Campbell has done an excellent job of creating a base from which we can expand the RSS service, and the Rocketinfo technology team has created one of the premier RSS providers in the news aggregator sector. We will work closely with them to direct the Company towards other areas in an effort to create profitability."

Mr. Lutz is a senior executive with more than 26 years of entrepreneurial experience. He has been directly responsible for corporate management, strategy and vision, marketing, operations, strategic business development, sales and information technology for both start-up and well-established companies. Additional areas of expertise include increasing brand recognition and consumer awareness, Internet sales, direct marketing, vertical/channel marketing and developing strategic alliances.

New Dimensions in Media, a full service Internet marketing and media group, will act as Rocketinfo's marketing agency, with principals Bill Ganz and Sheryl Perez personally overseeing the campaign.
