GINGER - THE FOURTH GENERATION PC GOES GROCERY SHOPPING.

Ginger Interactive, Inc., the personal kiosk system, has announced that grocery stores are poised to start using Ginger down their aisles. Ginger is now being delivered with wireless technology allowing grocery store executives the opportunity to bring up virtual ads and help shoppers with browsing for sales coupons.

By using wireless technology from two major wireless vendors, Ginger can now offer the grocery store industry an easier and faster method of conducting sales opportunities down the aisles. Ginger can even print out coupons for easy redemption at the cash register.

"We believe that Ginger will give customers an easy way to redeem coupons and have that impulse buying capacity by seeing flashy cool adds right down the store aisles and by giving their customers more efficient ways of conducting searches for the right recipes and getting their e-mails," said Gary German, CEO of Ginger Interactive.

"I wanted to help people that finds PCs hard to use and thinks net appliances are under-powered. Starting there, we designed the world's easiest to use PK. She talks with you, not just to you, with voice control software. And she works by touch, even without a keyboard. It's a cross between a laptop, a hand held device, a PC and a kiosk," added German.

Ginger uses a touch-screen or mouse-and-keyboard -- or both. Voice operation using specific commands uses no-training-needed software. Ginger has several easy to use programs such as 'one touch' e-mail or browsing the web by voice or touch.

Ginger was designed especially to help school children with disabilities, technology-intimidated seniors, special needs adults, and public or employee business niches.

Ginger Interactive is a Florida Corporation, designing a fourth generation of personal computers for the workforce as well as the home. Ginger Interactive, Inc. is dedicated to producing the world's easiest to use Personal Kiosk for the intimidated, those with special needs, the disabled and anyone who wants an easier way of computing.
