Press Release Body = San Anselmo, CA - August 21, 2007 - Applian Technologies has
just released the Freecorder Toolbar Sound Recorder, a free audio capture program
for Windows Vista which restores the audio recording functionality previously
available in prior versions of Windows. Using a new driverless recording process
developed by Applian, the software allows customers to capture audio as MP3 files
from virtually any application or internet stream. Freecorder Toolbar is free, and
available today from

Historically, all PC\'s had sound card drivers with an easily accessible recording
line, and also allowed recording applications to install custom sound card drivers.
Today, the sound card drivers that ship with Windows Vista rarely make a recording
line available, or if a sound card does have a recording line, that capability is
buried. And the new driver signing requirement of Windows Vista has permanently
disabled sound capture technologies that relied on custom drivers. Before Freecorder
Toolbar, it has been difficult or impossible to capture audio in Windows Vista.

Freecorder Toolbar works inside both Internet Explorer and Firefox, and offers
simple one-button recording that saves everything you hear from your PC speakers as
either an MP3 or WAV file. It will also record from the microphone or line-in inputs
on your PC. Additionally, Freecorder Toolbar includes a powerful Google-based
search, and optional browser enhancements like a radio tuner, weather bug, pop-up
blocker, search highlighter and more.

"We are thrilled to be able to give consumers an easy-to-use universal audio
recorder that works great with Windows Vista and XP" said Applian CEO Bill
Dettering, "Internet audio or application-generated sound can now be saved by
everyone. And our convenient browser-based interface offers enhanced search
capabilities and other cool tools, all for free. Everyone should have this great
little recorder on their browser."

Freecorder Toolbar was developed in partnership with Conduit, the leading platform
for building online communities via community toolbars. \"Our vision at Conduit is
to provide website publishers with the most powerful components and content for
their community toolbar, and ultimately to deliver a superior end-user experience,\"
said Ronen Shilo, CEO of Conduit. \"Applian is a clear leader managing streaming
media and we are delighted to provide their highly useful tools via our platform."
Freecorder Toolbar contains no advertising, and is available for free from It requires a PC running Windows 2000 or later.
