(April 16, 2001) -- Comet Systems, the interactive advertising company, will announce today that its newest product, Smart Cursors, has been installed on over 500,000 computers.

The product, which like other Comet products uses the cursor as a marketing device, makes the pointer capable of performing information-related functions, allowing users to gather information from The American Heritage Dictionary, Britannica.com, Yahoo!, Google or MSN without going to another site.

Comet, which relies on viral marketing to promote its products, also operates Fun Cursors, which turn cursors into licensed characters, and CometZone, a cursor portal for companies that want to use Comet Systems' foot products.
