    SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Moreover Technologies, the premier
 provider of aggregated online current awareness and business information,
 today announced that Pluck Corp., a software company dedicated to making it
 easier to find and manage Internet information, will integrate several of
 Moreover's RSS (Rich Site Summary) news solutions within its award-winning
 application -- providing users with a more convenient and comprehensive view
 into breaking online news.
     "Pluck was founded on providing an easier way to find, use and share
 online information," said Dave Panos, CEO of Pluck Corp. "Moreover's
 high-quality RSS news feeds and news search capabilities are helping us create
 a free solution that delivers on that vision."
     Pluck's browser companion application will incorporate Moreover technology
 into a series of personalized news resources for all of its customers. These
 new capabilities include:
     -- Aggregated RSS news feeds included as part of the application's default
        configuration. As opposed to RSS feeds with content from a single site,
        Moreover feeds deliver a more complete view into breaking news as they
        are based on topic-specific categories composed of articles aggregated
        from thousands of the most relevant and reliable online sources.
     -- A custom RSS feed builder will enable Pluck users to create and save
        RSS news feeds that are personalized to their specific news
     -- News search and Pearch -- "persistent search" -- functionality to allow
        users to quickly find relevant news and save queries as continually
        executing news searches that alert users when new articles appear.
        Unlike search functionality built into many RSS readers that searches
        only over the RSS headlines, Moreover powered searches return far more
        relevant results because searches are run across the headline and
        complete article content.
     "Aggregated online news content has become the most popular method of
 keeping up with the vast amount of online news content," said Jim Pitkow,
 chief executive officer and president of Moreover Technologies. "We're proud
 that Moreover RSS solutions will help Pluck users easily find, view and make
 sense of critical online news."
