| - San Francisco, CA              ATARI HELPS NET GRAMMY NOMINATION!
|   -----------------
|
|     The music award, The Grammy, known worldwide as a symbol of musical
| excellence and accomplishment, is about to be awarded to this year's fine
| artists.  Scott Gershin has been nominated for a Grammy in recognition for
| his superb music in the movie JFK.  He used Atari equipment to compose the
| musical score.

| - Ashville, N. Carolina              BLUE RIDGE AtariFest ANNOUNCED
|   ---------------------
|
|     The Blue Ridge Atari Computer Enthusiasts (BRACE) and its sponsor,
| Sheldon Winick & Computer STudio, recently announced the 3rd Annual BLUE
| RIDGE AtariFest to be held in Asheville, N.C. on Saturday, July 18, 1992.
| After last year's terrific festival, there is no doubt attendance will be
| high.

|
| - Chicago, IL.                               LISTENING CAREFULLY
|   ------------
|
|     The (Sparrow & Falcon)(68030-68040) are rumored to be announced
| sometime in the second quarter.  Atari Corp is very tight lipped when
| asked about performance stats, but the word is these machines are hot!  In
| fact, most "learned ears" say they will sport true SCSI ports and not
| ASCSI ports.  Hopefully the new products will be ready to ship soon after
| their initial showing.  Rumor also has it that a few Books have already,
| or are about to ship.  Good news sure feels nice.  In addition, the ABC
| line of clones are being given serious attention and could possibly be
| enhanced and priced competitively.  1040STe units seem to be in very short
| supply, while the MSTE units are doing very well.
