GiveMePower Extends Lead In Mobile CAD With New PowerCAD� CE Release

Jan 21, 2003

GiveMePower Corporation (OTCBB:GMPW), today announced it is now shipping new version 5.2 releases of its critically acclaimed PowerCAD CE� mobile/wireless computer-aided design (CAD) software. The new versions have been optimized for high performance on the latest generation of Microsoft Windows CE� and Windows CE .NET� equipped Pocket PC�s, Tablet PC�s and Pocket PC Cell Phones utilizing Intel�s new XScale� Processor.

Three new PowerCAD CE 5.2 versions � PowerCAD CE Viewer�, PowerCAD CE Classic�, and PowerCAD CE Professional�, feature numerous breakthroughs in mobile CAD technology, enabling companies to save time, improve customer service and increase profits by being able to view, markup, and create precise AutoCAD� compatible 2 and 3-dimensional designs and digital blueprints in the field or on the shop floor using the latest mobile/wireless handheld computing devices from leading vendors such as HP, Dell, T-Mobile and Rockwell Automation.

�PowerCAD CE is the only Windows CE based CAD system in the world that delivers workstation power in the palm of your hand�, said Bill Walton, President and CEO of GiveMePower. �Our new releases place us miles ahead of our nearest competitor in providing true 2 and 3-dimensional CAD for an estimated 2 million people looking to improve their productivity and reduce costs by having mobile CAD and digital blueprint processing available for use on their projects.�

Instantly usable by operators of any skill level, PowerCAD CE is designed for engineers, architects, builders, designers, renovators, manufacturers, site inspectors, project managers, facilities managers, emergency response workers, surveyors, realtors, military personnel, GIS professionals and anyone else who needs to work with 2D or 3D CAD drawings and blueprints.

PowerCAD CE Release 5.2 highlights include:

new support for Intel� XScale� equipped Pocket PC�s, such as HP�s 3900 series iPAQ� and Dell�s Axim� X5

new support for Microsoft�s latest Windows CE� 3.0 and Windows CE .NET� mobility computing platforms

special editions for ruggedized, full-screen Tablets, such as Advantech�s MobiPanel� and Rockwell�s VersaView�

new simplified and customizable pen-based interface for instant usability, even by non-CAD familiar operators

new direct on-board conversion of industry-standard AutoCAD DWG� and DXF� files (R12 to R2002 formats)

new exporting of AutoCAD compatible DWF� (Design Web Format) small-footprint vector file format

support for remote e-mail and wireless collaboration with AutoCAD, PowerCAD and other desktop CAD systems

enhanced 2D/3D viewing, redlining, sketching and hands-free VoiceNOTE� audio note keeping technology

new speed improvements up to 50% with enhanced 2D and 3D design options and new multiple viewport control

new EnterPoint� data entry system for efficient recording of precise 2D/3D coordinates, directions and distances

new digital image embedding in Pro version, with support for unlimited BMP, PNG, JPG, and TIF file importing

updated Lisp and C++ application programming interfaces (API) in Pro version for creation of custom applications

�PowerCAD CE is exactly what the Pocket PC was made for�, said Robert Horn of Into Design Group, a trade show and interior design consulting company located in West Jordan, Utah. �Ever since we got it, we have not had to work on our desktop computers at all. We can start drawings from scratch on-site and keep working on them in the car, the couch � anywhere. We tried all the other mobile CAD systems, but PowerCAD CE, in our opinion, is the only true CAD program for the Pocket PC.�

Other PowerCAD CE users include a growing list of Fortune 500 companies such as Maytag Corporation and General Dynamics Corporation, as well as America�s top governmental institutions including the Centers for Disease Control, the National Institutes of Health, and multiple branches of the U.S. Military, who are taking advantage of PowerCAD CE�s combination of power, size and exceptional compatibility with desktop leader AutoCAD�, to mobilize their workforces.

In addition to its PowerCAD CE mobile/wireless CAD solutions, GiveMePower�s product offerings include PowerCAD Pro� and PowerCAD LT+� for Windows� desktop computing, and PowerCAD Architect�, a new user-friendly software system that automates 2 and 3-dimensional design for companies involved in residential building design and light commercial construction applications.

Starting at $99, PowerCAD CE products are available for purchase or free trial from, with special introductory savings up to $100 on the Pro version in effect until the end of January, 2003.
