Nov 14, 2005, 00:00 ET from Airena Inc.

    PLEASANT HILL, Calif., Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Airena Inc. today announced
 the integration of its AirSet personal information management and group
 collaboration service with Skype to bring Internet telephony and chat to
 AirSet groups.  AirSet's "lifeware" lets users manage all their important
 groups in one place through shared calendars, address books, to-do lists,
 blogs, and weblinks. With the Skype integration, group members can now easily
 speak with each other and schedule group conference calls or Instant Messaging
 chats using the Skype client.
     "Skype's APIs made it easy for us to integrate their VoIP service with our
 group management software. Now AirSet group members can easily talk with each
 other using Skype," said Airena CEO, Brian Dougherty. "AirSet provides a rich
 online group collaboration service through its Ajax-enabled suite of web
 applications. With Skype integration, we have effectively added voice
 communications."
 
     Among the benefits of Skype on AirSet are:
 
     -- Easier Conference Calls:  AirSet organizes your life into the groups
 you interact with most frequently -- family, friends, work colleagues and
 social groups.  Now you can select a few members from any AirSet group and
 schedule a conference call through Skype with one click.
     -- Quickly See Online Status of Group Members:  The Skype online status
 icon appears next to each AirSet group members' name so you can quickly see
 who's available in each of your groups for a telephone call or IM chat.
     -- Chat with Group Members:  You can also select one or more members from
 the group list and initiate a chat using the Skype Instant Messaging feature.
 
     AirSet's Skype integration is currently available for Microsoft Windows XP
 and Windows 2000 operating systems using Internet Explorer 6.0 or later and
 Firefox 1.0 or later. Support for the Apple Macintosh OSX operating system
 using Firefox 1.0 or later will be available soon.
