ASI Entertainment Launches Cockpit ''Pentastic'' Technology for G3CARS.

SEATTLE -- ASI Entertainment, Inc. (OTCBB:ASIQ) today announced the launch by its Australian subsidiary, ASiQ Pty. Ltd., of its new G3CARS "Pentastic" advanced handwriting recognition technology. Pentastic technology is the latest development by ASiQ under the Microsoft (Nasdaq:MSFT) Empower program.

G3CARS is ASiQ's world's first electronic Aircraft Log Book system incorporating TabletPC and 3G communication technology.

Ron Chapman, ASI's CEO, stated, "Anyone who has used a PDA handwriting program or tried to type a message on a cellphone knows how frustrating it can be. Working with pilots, we found that the existing TabletPC handwriting system was not ideally suited for the aviation cockpit environment. With the advent of Microsoft's .NET (dot net) development platform, ASiQ was able to create for its G3CARS system a proprietary intelligent handwriting technology specially designed for aviation. While Pentastic will be invaluable for filling out the multitude of cockpit forms, it also means that the pilot will now have the ability to write emails on the Tablet PC, rather than trying to use the embedded keyboard."

"Pentastic" features a Write-Over (Ink-over) mechanism that allows the user to write straight over the top of already recognized characters. "Tap-Change" is also a smart method of flipping through predefined character sets and case styles. Individual character cell block recognition ensures accuracy and speed whilst aircraft FMC-format data entry ensures that pilots adapt easily to this new technology. POP-UP customized sub forms with background data calculations and validation take standard airline documentation to a new level. A signature capture field and aviation specific block recognition libraries makes this technology really "Pentastic."
