RIP Mac Fusion
After more than a year of silence about the fate of NetObjects Fusion for the Mac, NetObjects (888/449-6400,
) has announced it will no longer develop a Mac version of the Web-authoring program.
The programs may be the same but the names have changed. Corel (800/772-6735,
) has acquired rights to Ultimatte KnockOut, a $99 masking program that works with native Adobe Photoshop files (see
January 1999). ScanSoft (978/977-2000,
), which recently acquired the rights to MetaCreations’ consumer software products, is offering Kai’s Photo Soap 2, SuperGoo, and Power Show in a single $50 package known as PhotoFactory
) has added Mac compatibility to its HP 2500CM Professional Series color ink-jet printer. The printer, aimed at workgroups, includes Adobe PostScript 3 drivers.
Smith Micro Software (949/362-5800,
) has announced HotFax MessageCenter Pro, a voice-messaging system for the Mac. Users can manage telephone calls and voice messages, taking advantage of multiple voice mailboxes and fax-on-demand capabilities.
