Spyglass Tightens Integration between Embedded Internet Technologies and
Content Delivery Platform

Integration Creates Solution for Optimal Display of Content on Devices

CHICAGO -- Tuesday, March 2, 1999 -- Internet pioneer SpyglassŪ Inc.
(NASDAQ: SPYG) announced today at Embedded Systems Conference Spring tighter
integration between its Spyglass Device Mosaic embedded Web browser and
Spyglass Prism content delivery platform. Spyglass is demonstrating their
technologies in booth #1221.

Spyglass Prism is designed to simplify the delivery of information to the
next generation of Web-enabled devices. It does this by converting standard
Internet content into formats that match the specific requirements of any
Internet device, including televisions and mobile data devices.

Spyglass Device Mosaic has now been enhanced to work with the functionality
in Spyglass Prism to provide a client-server solution that can be tuned to
deliver optimized content to the device running Spyglass Device Mosaic. Such
information could instruct Spyglass Prism to enhance images for clearer
display, adjust fonts and perform color corrections for crisper display on
televisions. This client-server "cooperation" will enable Spyglass to make
adjustments, where necessary, to ensure customers can deploy fully optimized
services to their consumers.

Spyglass Prism enables service providers to offer integrated support for a
wide variety of devices over a single integrated infrastructure. Such
efficiencies are achieved by leveraging Spyglass Prism's dynamic content
conversion capabilities. These capabilities optimize the delivery of
Web-based content on network bandwidth and latency, content size and format,
and the device's desired representation of the information.

Spyglass Prism also allows content providers to eliminate the need to create
and maintain multiple versions of a Web site, where each version is targeted
to a particular device. By providing Spyglass Prism specific knowledge about
the device through these new enhancements, Spyglass Prism can more
efficiently tune and optimize the content to match the capabilities in the
device.

"Spyglass increasingly emphasizes the need for a total, end-to-end solution
with our customers," said Randy Littleson, Spyglass vice president and
general manager. "By integrating Spyglass Device Mosaic with Spyglass Prism,
we are now able to help customers achieve new efficiencies in delivering
content to a device."
