TimeRunner series of Organizers were introduced already in 1993 and
far ahead the competition. With the slim housing measuring only 0.2 inch they fitted
perfectly in a Day Runner system including a calendar, Today pages and tabs for
notes, meetings and finances. The book was refillable with the "Day Runner
Running Mate Edition" refills.
The TimeRunner organizer keeps three main types of information:
|• Reminders with unlimited alarms
• Addresses with a capacity of roughly 3000 entries in three personalized lists
• Notes sharing the same 64k Byte memory like the addresses
In addition to the basic Organizer function you'll discover:
|• A flexible clock with 12-hour AM/PM or 24-hour time
• Up to 4 daily alarms
• A calendar from January, 1960 to December, 2059.
• A calculator with 10-digits display capacity
• World time of 23 cities in all 24 time zones
• A backup battery
The display of the TimeRunner is very useful supporting 6 lines by 24 characters. The language of the menues could be choosen between five languages: French, English, German, Italian and Spanish.
The PS-9450 TimeRunner uses 32k Byte memory instead the 64k Bytes. In Europe a very similar product was sold as IS-8400.
Don't miss the ACADEMY 101,
Franklin Quest's edition of the PS-9500 and the DAY
RUNNER based on the PS-2100.
The system could be personalized with some options:
|PS-9000 Back-up Memory Module|
|PS-9010 Clip-in Frame|
|PS-9020 Link Software for IBM AT-compatible PC|
