Power On Nabs Now PIMs and Eudora Planner -- In a continuing quest to resurrect Now Software's suite of software, Power On Software announced today that they have licensed Now Contact and Now Up-to-Date from Qualcomm, plus acquired the rights to Eudora Planner. Support for the Now products, still in use by thousands of Mac users, had all but disappeared, and the Mac version of Eudora Planner has remained mired in beta status. Power On promises immediate updates to both Now products for compatibility with current versions of the Mac OS, though expected release dates were not revealed. [JLC]
