Fiscal Year 2001 
  
GiantBear, Inc 
:    On December 19, 2001, the Company acquired certain assets of GiantBear, Inc. (GiantBear) a wireless technology and 
service provider that enables wireless carriers to offer their subscribers access to content, data and mobile commerce through wireless devices, 
delivery channels and applications, for purchase consideration of $6.0 million plus acquisition expenses of $21,000. The acquisition was 
accounted for as a purchase.

The expected life of the core technology was assumed to be five years, after which substantial modification and enhancement would be 
required for the technology to remain competitive. The expected life of the customer list was also assumed to be five years, which is consistent 
with the expected cash flows from the customer contracts. The Company is amortizing the core technology and customer list over an estimated 
life of five years. In accordance with SFAS No. 142, no amortization of the goodwill will be recorded, as it has an indefinite life. The goodwill 
will be tested for impairment annually, with the Company's other indefinite life intangibles.  
  
As of the date of the acquisition, the technology acquired from GiantBear was substantially complete and no material alterations or 
enhancements were under development. The core of GiantBear's services revolved around its BearWare platform. The BearWare infrastructure 
platform provides the engine that allows users to migrate from one or more delivery vehicles (e.g. SMS, WAP, Audio) to others over time (e.g. 
3G). There are six primary technologies that made up the GiantBear suite of services: InfoAlert, one way SMS push, BearTracks, a 
configurable book marking capability; AudioCub, which delivers customized audio content on request to any analog or digital phone; Presto, a 
turnkey SMS solution for Tier 2 and Tier 3 wireless carriers; Mobile Originated Short Message Services, a 2 way SMS pull delivery vehicle; 
and BearCub, which enables any digital phone to access Internet content.
