 KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Reality Technologies, Inc., continuing to extend the boundaries of online services, has enhanced its Reality's Smart Investor Network(TM) by Money Magazine(A) online personal investing service with the Personalized News Clipping Service, an innovative news service that automatically delivers articles tailored to subscribers' holdings and financial interests. Reality's Smart Investor Network by Money Magazine(R) combines the latest financial information with news, guidance, management and analysis tools and online trading in a single, integrated system to help individuals become smarter investors.
 The Network's Personalized News Clipping Service is unlike traditional online news services where subscribers have to do the browsing, key-word searching or query-building. Instead, The Network monitors more than 1,600 news items daily from Dow Jones News Service, ensuring that subscribers get breaking business news, alerts on unusual price and trading activity and exclusive interviews with executives. Other highly regarded sources include Money Magazine, CNBC and top investment newsletters.
 "Our personalized News Clipping Service makes traditional online news services obsolete because we find the news stories that are relevant to you -- automatically. You just have to tell your PC when you want your information downloaded," said Mark H. Goldstein, president of Reality Technologies, Inc. "Subscribers no longer have the cumbersome chore of searching for articles or building queries and missing out on important news that can impact their investments."
 Low Flat Fee of $6.95 Per Month
 Traditional online, fax or wireless news services are costly, with subscribers paying upwards of $50 per month. For a flat fee of $6.95 per month, the Personalized News Clipping Service automatically delivers up to 1,000 news items and headlines to subscribers monthly. There's no online time or per-story charge. Moreover, the Personalized News Clipping Service sends all the articles at once, so it doesn't tie up phone lines.
 Get the News You Can use
 Goldstein explained, "The Network does it all for them." Subscribers simply build a list of companies, industries or mutual funds they have an interest in. Relevant stories are downloaded to subscriber hard drives, from which they can read the headlines as well as the entire story. For example, if a subscriber has an interest in:

 -- Merck. The Network finds articles such as "Standard & Poor's Investing Outlook on the Pharmaceutical Industry."
 -- The oil industry. The Network finds articles such as "Crude Oil Prices Drop to Under $18 a Barrel" or "United Nations Continues Sanctions Against Iraq."
