        2.3 Compatibility and Trademark License.

             (a) Compatibility Testing. 3Com will finalize and provide to JD
compatibility test criteria for ensuring interoperability of third party add-on
software for the Palm OS and the JD Products ("Test Criteria") within ninety
(90) days of the Effective Date. JD and 3Com will agree on a reasonable time
period for compatibility testing of the JD Products by any of 3Com's independent
testing labs ("Test Period") which shall be incorporated into the Test Criteria.
When finalized, such Test Criteria shall be attached as Exhibit B (Test
Criteria) to this Agreement. 3Com shall use its reasonable discretion in
determining the contents of the Test Criteria; provided that, in the event JD
does not approve of the Test Criteria, as its sole and exclusive remedy JD may
terminate this Agreement immediately without liability within thirty (30) days
of its first receipt of the Test Criteria from 3Com. Prior to the release of any
and all JD Products, or any upgrade or new version thereof, JD shall submit the
JD Products at its expense to any of 3Com's approved independent compatibility
testing labs ("Approved Testing Lab") for compatibility testing in accordance
with the Test Criteria. If the Approved Testing Lab rejects the JD Products

Criteria only once, regardless of 3Com's subsequent modifications to the Palm
Software. However, in order to obtain compatibility certification for Palm
Software with new functionality and new Test Criteria as described in the last
paragraph of Section 2.3(a), JD may submit JD Products for compatibility testing
against such new Test Criteria in accordance with Section 2.3(a). JD may
indicate compatibility certification for JD Products only with respect to the
version(s) of the Test Criteria which the JD Products have passed.

             (c) Trademark License. Subject to subsections (a) and (b) above and
the other terms and conditions of this Agreement, 3Com hereby grants to JD a
limited, non-exclusive, nontransferable (except as provided in Section 17.9),
fully-paid license to use, subject to the guidelines set forth in 3Com's
Trademark Policy Guidelines attached hereto as Exhibit C, the "Palm Computing
Platform Compatible" trademark and such other 3Com trademarks and the respective
stylistic marks as may be mutually agreeable and the artwork for which has been
provided by 3Com to JD (collectively, the "3Com Trademarks") in connection with
the marketing and sale of JD Products that have received compatibility
certification in accordance with subsection (a) above. JD shall use such
trademarks in conjunction with the distribution, promotion, and marketing of any
JD Products that have received compatibility certification, consistent with the
guidelines set forth in Exhibit C. 3Com shall have the right to receive free

enforce and protect 3Com's intellectual property rights against such [*],
provided that 3Com reserves the right to enforce and protect its intellectual
property rights directly against such [*] with the cooperation of JD.

        11.3 Year 2000 Warranty.

             (a) 3Com warrants to JD that the Palm Software will continue
performing properly with regard to date-data on and after January 1, 2000,
provided that all other products used by JD in connection or combination with
the Palm Software accurately exchange date-data with the Palm Software. 3Com
makes no certification regarding the performance of any other 3Com products with
regard to date-data.

             (b) If it appears that any Palm Software does not perform properly
with regard to date-data on and after January 1, 2000, and JD notifies 3Com
thereof before April 1, 2000, 3Com shall, at its option and expense, provide JD
with a software update which would effect the proper performance of the Palm
Software or deliver to JD equivalent software to replace the Palm Software. Any
such software update or equivalent software will be warranted pursuant to
subsection (a) above for ninety (90) days or until April 1, 2000, whichever is
later.

12. INDEMNIFICATION

        12.1 By 3Com. 3Com shall, at its own expense, defend and indemnify JD
for damages and reasonable costs incurred in any suit, claim or proceeding
brought against JD alleging that the Palm Software, Palm Materials or 3Com
Trademarks licensed pursuant to this Agreement infringe (i) any patents in the
U.S., Canada, Japan, or the European Community, (ii) any copyrights worldwide,
or (iii) any trademarks in any countries in which 3Com markets products in
connection with the 3Com Trademarks, or misappropriate any trade secrets,
provided that 3Com is promptly notified, rendered reasonable assistance by JD as
required, and permitted to direct the defense or settlement negotiations. 3Com
shall have no liability for any infringement arising from: (a) the integration
or combination of the Palm Software, Palm Materials or Com, Trademarks together
with other software, materials or products not integrated or combined by 3Com,
if the infringement would have been avoided in the absence of such integration
or combination; (b) the use of other than a current unaltered release of the
software available from 3Com, if the infringement would have been avoided by the
use of the then-current release, and if 3Com has provided such current release
to JD; or (c) modifications to the Palm Software or Palm Materials requested by
JD.

        12.2 Remedies. In the event 3Com reasonably believes that the use or
distribution of any Palm Software, Palm Materials or 3Com Trademarks is likely
to be enjoined, 3Com may, at its option, either: (i) substitute functionally
equivalent non-infringing Palm Software or Palm Materials, as the case may be;
(ii) modify the infringing item so that it no longer infringes but remains
functionally equivalent; (iii) obtain for JD, at 3Com's expense, the right to
continue use of such item; or (iv) if none of the foregoing is feasible, 3Com
may take back such infringing item or items and terminate only that portion of
the license associated with respect to such item or items, subject to a mutually
satisfactory equitable reduction in the Royalty and fees payable under this
Agreement. Should the use or distribution of any Palm Software, Palm Materials
or 3Com Trademarks be enjoined, 3Com shall, at its option, either: (i)
substitute functionally equivalent non-infringing Palm Software or Palm
Materials, as the case may be; (ii) modify the infringing item so that it no
longer infringes but remains functionally equivalent; (iii) obtain for



                                       14
<PAGE>   15

JD, at 3Com's expense, the right to continue use of such item; or (iv) if none
of the foregoing is feasible, 3Com may take back such infringing item or items
and terminate only that portion of the license associated with respect to such
item or items, subject to a mutually satisfactory equitable reduction in the
Royalty and fees payable under this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, JD
acknowledges that 3Com may undertake to obtain patent licenses from third
parties relating to the Palm Software, and in such event the royalty obligation
for the JD Products arising from such patent licenses shall be passed through
to, and paid at the direction of 3Com by JD; provided, however, that the
per-unit royalty obligation payable by JD shall not exceed the per-unit or
percentage royalty obligation (whichever is less) payable by 3Com for products
similar to the JD Products, and shall not in any event exceed [*]. SECTIONS 12.1
and 12.2 STATE JD'S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY WITH RESPECT TO CLAIMS OF
INFRINGEMENT OF PROPRIETARY RIGHTS OF ANY KIND, AND ALL WARRANTIES OF
NON-INFRINGEMENT, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ARE SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMED AND EXCLUDED.

        12.3 By JD. JD shall, at its own expense, defend and indemnify 3Com for
damages and reasonable costs incurred in any suit, claim or proceeding brought
against Palm Computing Inc., 3Com Corporation or its and their subsidiaries
alleging that the JD Products, JD Software and/or related materials infringe (i)
any patents in the U.S., Canada, Japan, or the European Community, (ii) any
copyrights worldwide, or (iii) any trademarks in any countries in which JD
markets products in connection with the 3Com Trademarks, or misappropriate any
trade secrets, provided that JD is promptly notified, rendered reasonable
assistance by 3Com as required, and permitted to direct the defense or
settlement negotiations. JD shall have no liability for any infringement arising
from: (a) the integration or combination of the JD Products or JD Software
together with other software, materials or products not integrated or combined
by JD, if the infringement would have been avoided in the absence of such
integration or combination; or (b) use or distribution of Palm Software or Palm
Materials. SECTION 12.3 STATES 3COM'S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY WITH RESPECT TO
CLAIMS OF INFRINGEMENT OF PROPRIETARY RIGHTS OF ANY KIND, AND ALL WARRANTIES OF
NONINFRINGEMENT, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ARE SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMED AND EXCLUDED.

        12.4 Other Indemnity. Each party shall indemnify and defend the other
against all claims, suits, losses, expenses and liabilities (including
reasonable attorneys' fees) for bodily injury, personal injury, death and
tangible property damage as a result of the negligence, intentional wrongful
acts or omissions, or misrepresentations of the indemnifying party or any person
for whose actions it is legally liable, provided that the indemnifying party is
promptly notified, rendered reasonable assistance by the indemnified party as
required, and permitted to direct the defense or settlement negotiations.

the Disclosing Party other than as expressly permitted under the terms of this

Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to any person or entity other
than its officers, employees, contractors, and consultants who need access to
such Confidential Information in order to effect the intent of this Agreement
and who have entered into confidentiality agreements which protect the
Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party sufficient to enable the
Receiving Party to comply with this Section 13.1 (Confidential Information). The
Receiving Party shall immediately give notice to the Disclosing Party of any
unauthorized use or disclosure of Disclosing Party's Confidential Information.
The Receiving Party agrees to assist the Disclosing Party to remedy such
unauthorized use or disclosure of its Confidential Information.

        13.2 Exceptions to Confidential Information. The obligations set forth
in Section 13.1 (Confidential Information) shall not apply to the extent that
Confidential Information includes information which is: (a) now or hereafter,

the public domain; (b) known to the Receiving Party without an obligation of
confidentiality at the time the Receiving Party receives the same from the
Disclosing Party, as evidenced by written records; (c) hereafter furnished to
the Receiving Party by a third party as a matter of right and without
restriction on disclosure; (d) furnished to others by the Disclosing Party
without restriction on disclosure; or (e) independently developed by the
Receiving Party without use of the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information.
Nothing in this Agreement shall prevent the Receiving Party from disclosing
Confidential Information to the extent the Receiving Party is legally compelled
to do so by any governmental investigative or judicial agency pursuant to
proceedings over which such agency has jurisdiction; provided, however, that
prior to any such disclosure, the Receiving Party shall (i) assert the
confidential nature of the Confidential Information to the agency; (ii)
immediately notify the Disclosing Party in writing of the agency's order or
request to disclose; and (iii) cooperate fully with the Disclosing Party in
protecting against any such disclosure and/or obtaining a protective order
narrowing the scope of the compelled disclosure and protecting its
confidentiality.

        13.3 Other Palm Software Source Code Restrictions. Except as permitted
in this Agreement, JD shall not use, make, have made, distribute or disclose any
copies of the source code of the Palm Software, in whole or in part, or the
information contained therein without the prior written authorization of 3Com.
JD shall inform its employees having access to such source code of JD's
limitations, duties and obligations regarding nondisclosure and copying of such
source code and shall obtain or have obtained their written agreement to comply
with such limitations, duties and obligations. JD shall maintain records of its
employees having access to such source code, and upon reasonable notice 3Com may

PALM COMPUTING(TM) PLATFORM SOLUTION PROVIDER
MARKETING COMMUNICATIONS GUIDELINES

                       MARKETING COMMUNICATIONS GUIDELINES
            For products designed for the Palm Computing(TM) platform

INTRODUCTION

The Palm Computing platform, the foundation for the market-leading PalmPilot(TM)
and Palm III(TM) connected organizers, is the fastest growing handheld computing
platform in history. As a developer of products designed for the Palm Computing
platform, you have contributed immensely to its success. Your role will continue
to increase in importance as individuals and companies find new uses for
products from Palm Computing, a 3Com company, and for a growing number of
products from our market-leading original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and
licensing partners.

        To help you and your products be successful and to protect the
investment in our own trademark and branding efforts, we are supplying you with
these marketing materials and style guidelines. The guidelines are designed to
ensure the protection and maintenance of our various brand identities on all of
your products and marketing vehicles.

        Please take a few moments to review these materials and contact Palm
Computing Developer Services at devinfo@palm.com with any questions you may have
regarding your company's proposed use of trademarks and other marketing
elements.

        To obtain a Solution Provider version of the Palm Computing Brand
Identity CD ROM featuring graphics, legal and products copy, please visit
http://www.palm.com/devzoneplatform_logo to place your order.

        3Com applies brand names and trademarks to both products and services,
and supports these brand names with a wide range of advertising and promotional
activities. While trademarks are important for establishing and protecting
corporate and product identity, they are fragile rights that can be lost through
misuse. Trademarks must be used consistently and renewed regularly, otherwise
the trademarked name, phrase or element risks becoming unenforceable.

        Many of our trademarks are registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark
Office and its equivalent in Foreign countries. These trademarks should be
indicated with the (R) symbol. Other trademarks should be indicated with the
(TM) symbol.



WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING ABOUT PALM COMPUTING(TM) HANDHELDS

"In only two months my PalmPilot organizer has become an integral part of my
lifestyle."

"There is no way to overstate how much I value my PalmPilot. It gives me all of
the tools I need to keep organized in a package small enough that I actually
carry it with me, instead of leaving it on my desk."

"I appreciated it so much that now, I provide all members of my management team
with their own. All resources (contacts, to do lists, agendas) are shared
through our LAN. Thanks."

"The PalmPilot was one of the best things I ever bought for myself."

MARKETING COMMUNICATIONS GUIDELINES

General Trademark Usage Rules

The following general trademark rules should be applied to all 3Com trademarks:

1. NEVER USE THE TRADEMARK IN A FASHION THAT RISKS MAKING THE TERM "GENERIC."

In order to protect a trademark, it is important to use it in a way such that it
does not become a generic term. An example of a case where using the trademark
inappropriately has put a product brand or trademark at risk of being
unprotected by law is "aspirin."

        Using the trademark "aspirin" without the proper noun "pain reliever"
following it, has made "aspirin" the generic term for "pain reliever," rather
than a protected trademarked brand name of Bayer Corporation. Similarly, using
the term Xerox as a verb, as in "I will xerox a copy of that memo for you," has
contributed to making "xerox" a generic term; as a result, Xerox Corporation has
been forced to spend millions of dollars in corrective advertising.

   Correct:    The pocket-sized Palm III(TM) connected organizers give you
               instant access to your most important data at your fingertips.

   Incorrect:  1. The pocket-sized Palm III(TM) gives you instant access to your
                  most important data.

               2. Palm III(TM) gives you instant access to your most important
                  data in the palm of your hand.

2. TRADEMARKS MUST ALWAYS APPEAR AS ADJECTIVES, FOLLOWED BY AN APPROPRIATE
DESCRIPTIVE NOUN.

   Correct:    Widgeteer software is compatible with the Palm III(TM) connected
               organizer.

   Incorrect:  Widgeteer software is compatible with the Palm III(TM).

3. TRADEMARK SYMBOLS MUST OCCUR AT LEAST ONCE IN EACH PIECE.

All Palm Computing and 3Com logos, including the Designed For Palm Computing
platform logo, the Designed for Palm Computing platform Platinum logo, and the
3Com logo, must carry their respective trademark symbols each time they are
used. Because the Palm Computing platform logo is pending federal registration,
it should be used with a (TM) symbol. Because the 3Com logo is federally
registered, it should be used with a (R) symbol.

        For other trademarks, the appropriate trademark symbol must appear on
the first prominent reference, typically in a headline, and again on the first
reference in body copy. It is not necessary to repeat the designation throughout
the rest of the document. However, trademark symbols should be properly
designated in all charts, tables, graphs, and slides, since these marketing
vehicles have greater potential to be used independently. Please reference the
section entitled "Using Brand Names in Copy" for correct usage. (Developers for
the Palm Computing platform are not authorized to use the 3Com logo except when
Palm Computing and the developer have made the agreement to co-brand a product.)

General Trademark Usage Rules

4. BE CONSISTENT. ALWAYS USE TRADEMARKS AND BRAND NAMES IN THE WAYS THEY WERE
INTENDED TO BE USED.

Never use trademarks as possessives.

   Correct:    The Palm III(TM) organizer's shirt pocket size is a great selling
               feature.

   Incorrect:  The Palm III's(TM) shirt pocket size is a great selling feature.

Never use trademarks in a plural form.

   Correct:    Palm III(TM) connected organizers feature as infrared beaming
               capability.

   Incorrect:  Palm III's(TM) feature an infrared beaming capability.

Never hyphenate a trademark.

   Correct:    Enhanced HotSync(TM) technology enables remote schnronization.

   Incorrect:  Enhanced HotSync(TM)-enabled systems can synchronize remotely.

Never abbreviate a product name in such a way that the full trademark name is
left out.

   Correct:    PalmPilot(TM) connected organizer.

   Incorrect:  Pilot

Never alter a trademark (i.e.: Never use the trademark as a verb)

   Correct:    Synchronization, using HotSync(TM) technology, refers to a
               two-way data exchange-between your PC and the PalmPilot(TM)
               connected organizer.

   Incorrect:  HotSynching your data assures a two-way data exchange-between
               your PC and the PalmPilot(TM) connected organizer.

Always use the proper capitalization of a trademark.

   Correct:    HotSync(TM) technology.

   Incorrect:  Hotsync(TM) technology.

Avoid placing descriptors between a trademark and its noun.

   Correct:    PalmPilot(TM) connected organizer.

   Incorrect:  PalmPilot(TM) 2MB connected organizer.

Always attribute the (TM) or (R) correctly.

   Correct:    Palm(TM) Desktop organizer software.

   Incorrect:  Palm Desktop(TM) organizer software.

5. DIFFERENTIATE TRADEMARKS FROM TRADE NAMES.

A trade name is the name of a company and is used to identify that company
rather than its products. Palm Computing uses "Palm Computing" as either a
trademark or a trade name, depending on the context. For example, Palm
Computing(TM) platform (registered trademark) developed by Palm Computing, a
3Com company (trade name). Note: When using Palm Computing as a trade name, do
not use the (R) designation.

Naming Your Product or Company

CATEGORY DESCRIPTORS

When referencing the collective grouping of organizers supported by 3Com and
manufactured by Palm Computing, U.S. Robotics or 3Com, the preferred formal
pairing of trademark and descriptive noun is:

                   "Palm Computing(TM) connected organizers."

        To avoid repetition within a document or to better address the needs of
an enterprise audience, "connected organizers" may be replaced with "handhelds",
"devices" or "organizers."

        In informal usage or when repetition of the preferred phrase "Palm
Computing" connected organizers is cumbersome, the collective grouping of
organizers manufactured by Palm Computing, U.S. Robotics or 3Com may be
referenced as "Palm(TM) connected organizers". To avoid repetition within a
document or to better address the needs of an enterprise audience, "connected
organizers" may be replaced with "handhelds," "devices," "computers" or
"organizers."

        A collective grouping of organizers including the Palm III(TM) connected
organizer and the PalmPilot(TM) organizer, may also be referenced as follows:
"Palm III(TM) and PalmPilot(TM) connected organizers". Again, depending on
audience, "connected organizers" may be replaced with "handhelds," "devices" or
"organizers".

        Devices (such as the IBM WorkPad PC companions) that are manufactured by
licensed and OEM partners using Palm Computing technology, in addition to Palm
Computing(TM) connected organizers (such as the Palm III(TM) connected
organizer), may be referred to as: "Palm Computing(TM) platform devices" or
"Palm Computing(TM) platform handhelds".

        When referencing peripherals and software designed for use with the Palm
Computing(TM) connected organizers and Palm Computing(TM) platform devices,
refer to them as "Palm Computing(TM) platform compatible products".

        Never use Palm Computing trademarks, such as "Palm computers" to
describe handheld devices (such as Microsoft Windows CE products) that are not
compatible with the Palm Computing(TM) platform. Refer to such products by their
own trademarks or with a generic product category such as "handhelds" or
"handheld computers."

TRADE DRESS

        3Com and Palm Computing logos, or any confusingly similar marks, may not
be used without the express, written authorization of Palm Computing. Please
contact the Palm Computing Marketing Communications department for express
written authorization prior to publishing.

        Other distinctive elements of the Palm Computing brand identity,
including the color palette or other graphic elements, may not be used in a
manner that closely replicates Palm Computing or 3Com materials, so as to create
confusion as to whether the product, publication, or marketing vehicle is from
Palm Computing, 3Com, or your company.

Naming Your Product or Company

        The naming of your product, service, or company is an important decision
and we encourage you to seek marketing and legal counsel to ensure that you have
done the requisite trademark searches on the name(s) and that your choice(s) can
be protected. The following defines what you may or may not do with respect to
using Palm Computing trademarks in this context.

        You may not use Palm, Pilot, Palm III, PalmPilot, Palm OS, HotSync
technology or any other 3Com or Palm Computing trademark as part of your own
company name, product name, or as part of the brand name of your company's
product. You may not create and use trademarks or logos that are confusingly
similar to the Palm Computing trademarks or logos.

        Developers who have improperly incorporated the Palm mark (or any other
Palm Computing trademark) into their naming strategy are advised to develop and
communicate their transition plan to Palm Computing Developer Services.

        Based on an agreement with Pilot Corporation, Palm Computing has agreed
to transition out of using the trademark Pilot in naming its products.
Developers may continue to use the standalone word Pilot in reference to the
original Pilot 1000 and Pilot 5000 connected organizers. Because the mark Pilot
will not be used by Palm Computing for future products, developers are advised
to discontinue using this mark for Palm Computing related products.

        Developers who have already incorporated the Pilot mark into their
naming strategy are advised to transition away from it at their earliest
convenience.

        Please also read the section entitled "Indicating Compatibility With
Products Based on the Palm Computing Platform" following this section. Example I
specifically addresses product naming.

Example: Assume your company's name is Acme.

The following product names are NOT permissible:
              Acme(TM) Palmware software
              Acme(TM) Palmlink software
              Acme(TM) Palmlegal Widgeteer software for lawyers
              Acme(TM) Palmpoker game software

   2.          Incorporate this information elsewhere such as in the body copy,
               system requirements section or as a tagline to your product logo.

When trademark usage guidelines are utilized appropriately, you may use the
terms PalmPilot(TM), Palm III(TM), Palm Computing(TM) organizers, handhelds, or
devices, Palm Computing(TM) platform, Palm OS(TM), and/or HotSync(TM) technology
to indicate that your products are compatible. In text, there are several ways
to indicate that your products are compatible with the Palm Computing(TM)
platform. For example, compatibility can be referenced in body copy, a tagline
to your product logo, or in the system requirements section. Assume your company
name is Acme and your product name is Widgeteer.

   3.          Utilize the "Designed for Palm Computing platform" logo, or the
               special "Designed for Palm Computing platform Platinum" logo, on
               components of your product packaging - the outer box and CD ROM
               art - and the marketing vehicles for the product.

(The platinum version of this logo is only made available to products that have
passed independent compatibility testing.)

        Stating that your product is designed for the Palm Computing platform
implies support for a larger product set than offered by 3Com, and therefore
increases your potential customer base. Products from Palm Computing platform
OEM and licensing partners include the IEM WorkPad PC companion , a handheld
computing device sold into the enterprise market, the Franklin Day Planner from
Franklin Covey, sold into the time management and training markets, and others.
Symbol Technologies and QUALCOMM, Inc. are also developing products based on the
platform. Visit our web site at www.palm.com for a complete list of OEM and
licensing partners.

Designed for Palm Computing Platform Logo Usage

THE DESIGNED FOR PALM COMPUTING PLATFORM LOGO USAGE GUIDELINES

Palm Computing has established the following set of Guidelines to assist you in
proper use of the logo.

   1.          The following attribution footnote should accompany each use of
               the logo. "Palm Computing is a registered trademark and the Palm
               Computing platform logo is a trademark of Palm Computing, Inc.,
               3Com or its subsidiaries." If other 3Com trademarks are
               referenced in the context of the document, they should also be
               included in the attribution footnote.

   2.          You may only use the logo as a symbol that your product is
               designed for the Palm Computing(TM) platform and those products
               based upon it. You may not imply that Palm Computing in any way
               endorses your product.

   3.          The Designed for Palm Computing platform logo program is not
               intended to be a "certification" program; i.e., the logo does not
               represent that Palm Computing certifies your product in any way.

   4.          Usage of the Designed for Palm Computing platform Platinum logo
               requires that the product pass Compatibility Testing through a
               Palm Computing designated independent compatibility testing
               center. Other than maintenance or bug-fix releases, new releases
               of the product must be re-tested for compatibility.

   5.          You must sign and return the Palm Computing Platform Logo License
               Agreement before artwork will be provided.

   6.          You may not display the logo on any materials including, but not
               limited to, packaging, collateral and documentation, in a manner
               which suggests that the product is a Palm Computing product or in
               a manner which suggests that Palm Computing is a part of your
               product's name.

   7.          You may not alter or animate the logo in any way.

SIZING, PLACEMENT AND COLOR REQUIREMENTS:

   1.          Palm Computing will provide camera-ready artwork of the logo in
               electronic format.

   2.          You may not display the logo on packaging, documentation,
               collateral or advertising in a manner which suggests that your
               product is a Palm Computing product or in a manner which suggests
               that the mark, Palm Computing, is a part of your product name.

   3.          The logo cannot be larger than or more prominent than your
               product name, trademark, logo or trade name.

   4.          You may not combine the logo with any other feature, including,
               but not limited to, other logos, words, graphics, photos,
               slogans, headlines, numbers, design features, or symbols.

   5.          The Designed for Palm Computing platform logo and the Designed
               for Palm Computing platform Platinum logo must stand alone. A
               minimum amount of empty space has been established around the
               logo to ensure that it appears in a clear visual field. No other
               object such as type, photography, borders, edges, etc. may appear
               in the empty space. The preferred distance between the logo
               border and any other type images or graphic elements on any side
               is equal to the height of the logo block. The minimum required
               border (margin of empty space around the logo) must be "x" where
               "x" equals the width of the logo block.

   6.          Minimum and maximum size requirements for the logos are displayed
               below. For odd-sized materials, the maximum size logo height
               should not exceed 5% of largest dimension.

   7.          The right to use this logo is at the discretion of Palm Computing
               and Palm Computing reserves the right to revoke that right or
               change its program at any time.

Trademark Acknowledgment & Image Usage

ATTRIBUTION LINES AND LEGAL DISCLAIMERS

Legal copy, sometimes called "mousetype" or "the disclaimer" is commonly found
at the bottom of an ad, brochure, datasheet, direct mailer, or other marketing
vehicle.

        To protect all involved, the mousetype for your marketing materials
referencing either Palm Computing or its trademarks should incorporate the
referenced trade name and trademarks.

Example:

Assume your company's name is Acme and the name of your product is Widgeteer and
that Acme is a registered trademark and Widgeteer is a trademark. Assume also
that you have included photos of the Palm III(TM) connected organizer,
referenced HotSync(TM) technology in the body copy of your marketing piece, and
used the Designed for Palm Computing(TM) platform logo. Your attribution line
should read as follows:

     Copyright(C)1998 Acme Corporation. All rights reserved. Acme is a
     registered trademark and the Acme logo and Widgeteer are trademarks of Acme
     Corporation. 3Com, the 3Com logo, Palm Computing and HotSync are registered
     trademarks, and Palm III, the Palm III logo and the Palm Computing platform
     logo are trademarks of Palm Computing, Inc., 3Com Corporation or its
     subsidiaries. All other brands and product names may be trademarks or
     registered trademarks of the respective holders.

The following short-form legal copy is acceptable only where space
considerations will not allow for a full statement:

     Copyright(C)1998 Acme Corporation, Acme is a registered trademark, and the
     Acme logo and Widegeteer are trademarks of Acme Corporation. All other
     trademarks are the property of their respective owners.

USING PICTURES OR IMAGES OF PALM COMPUTING PRODUCTS

Use any of the photos or images provided on the Palm Computing Brand Identity CD
ROM-Developer Version.

        If you create your own photography incorporating Palm Computing
products, remember that size and form factor are key selling points, so we
recommend that you show scale by making sure there is another object in the
picture that gives an indication of its relative size.

    -   The focus of your marketing vehicle should be on your product, and
        mentions or photography of Palm Computing products and trademarks should
        be in support of that messaging.

    -   You may replace Palm Pilot(TM) or Palm III(TM) screens with your own
        screens designed to promote your product.

    -   Creative concept, art and copy should reflect positively on both the
        features of the Palm Computing product mentioned and the Palm Computing
        brand in general.

3COM SUPPORT SERVICES 1. Definitions.

"Severity One" Support is defined as-support required to address a fatal program
error in the Palm Software which has a critical business impact and precludes
significant useful work from being done or, significantly precludes developer
and/or end-user operations.

"Severity Two" Support is defined as support required to address a program error
in the Palm Software which has a significant business impact where important
features are unavailable with no acceptable workaround and development
operations are seriously impaired.

"Severity Three" Support is defined as support required to address a program
error in the Palm Software with some business impact, such as important features
unavailable but a workaround is available or less significant features are
unavailable with no reasonable workaround.

2. Support Response Times. The parties shall promptly agree in good faith to
share any information and/or documentation which may be required to permit 3Com
to identify and resolve any development support requests. The support response
period begins after 3Com (a) has enough information to profile the reported
error and (b) can recreate the reported error or has access to a facility where
the error can be recreated ("Start Date"). 3Com agrees to use commercially
reasonable efforts to recreate the reported error and respond based on the
following timetable:

        "Severity One" Support. 3Com shall use reasonable commercial efforts to
resolve or reduce the severity via workaround and/or patch within two (2)
business days of the Start Date, or if unable to resolve such problem within
such timeframe, 3Com shall provide its action plan within such timeframe and
provide regular status updates. A final resolution shall be identified in the
action plan. 3Com and JD problem managers shall review incident after two (2)
business days and every two (2) business days thereafter until the error has
been resolved.

        "Severity Two" Support. 3Com shall use reasonable commercial efforts to
resolve or reduce the severity via workaround and/or patch within five (5)
business days of the Start Date, or if unable to resolve such problem within
such timeframe, 3Com shall provide its action plan within such timeframe and
provide regular status updates. 3Com and JD problem managers shall review
incident after five (5) business days. A final engineering resolution shall be
identified in the action plan.

        "Severity Three" Support. 3Com shall use reasonable commercial efforts
to acknowledge the error within ten (10) business days of receipt of notice.
3Com shall provide a final engineering resolution within three (3) months or
next scheduled release, whichever is sooner.

        So long as 3Com is using reasonable commercial efforts to recreate
reported errors and resolve or reduce Severity One and Severity Two problems in
accordance with the action plan provided, 3Com's inability to resolve such
problems within the timeframes stated herein or the action plan shall not be
deemed a material breach of Section 6.1 the Agreement. The prescribed support
response times above may be extended as mutually agreed, such agreement not to
be unreasonably withheld, e.g., if resolution of the problem requires timely
hardware certification or test, or if resolution represents significant risk to
the essential functions. Any support requests that are attributable to any
matters other than errors in the unmodified Palm Software provided by 3Com to JD
hereunder are subject to billing at 3Com's standard time and materials rates.

        3. Support Evaluation. The parties will attempt in good faith to
promptly resolve any controversy or claim relating to performance of the
technical support assistance provided by 3Com under this Agreement. Each party
may request the other party to involve appropriate senior executives of such
other party who shall have the authority to resolve the matter.

California corporation with a place of business at 5400 Bayfront Plaza,

The effective date of this Amendment shall be March 9, 1999 ("Effective Date").

                                    RECITALS

        A. Effective as of September 24, 1998, 3Com and Licensee entered into a
Software License Agreement, as amended ("License Agreement"; capitalized terms
used herein and not defined shall have the meanings set forth in the License
Agreement) with regard to Licensee's developing, manufacturing and marketing
handheld computing products incorporating specified 3Com software and technology
related to the 3Com Palm Computing platform.

        B. Licensee has received, and hopes to receive in the future, from 3Com
certain source code for the Palm Software so that Licensee may modify certain
portions of such source code as specified in this Amendment pursuant to the
terms and conditions of the License Agreement.

                                    AGREEMENT

        NOW, THEREFORE, the parties hereby amend the License Agreement as
follows:

        1 DEFINITION. Each reference in the License Agreement to "JD" shall be
deleted and replaced with the word "Licensee."

        2 SOURCE CODE MODIFICATION. The following is added to Section 2 of the
License Agreement:

        "2.10 Source Code Modification License. Subject to the terms and
conditions of this Agreement, 3Com hereby grants to Licensee a limited,
non-exclusive, non-transferable (subject to Section 17.9), fully-paid license to
(i) modify those portions of the Palm Source Code as identified in an Attachment
hereto (the "Modifiable Source Code") but only for the limited purpose(s) set
forth in such Attachment with respect to such Modifiable Code, and (ii) use,
reproduce and distribute such modifications (the "Modifications") in object code
form to the same extent as Licensee is permitted to do so with respect to
Derivative Works pursuant to Section 2.2 above. For each set of Modifiable Code,
the parties shall execute separate sequentially numbered Attachments (e.g.
Attachment No. 1, Attachment No. 2, etc.). Licensee shall have no right to (a)
sublicense the rights granted in subsection (i) above to any third party, (b)
modify any Palm Source Code other than the Modifiable Source Code, or (c) modify
the Modifiable Source Code for any purpose other than as expressly set forth in
the applicable

<PAGE>   70

Attachment. The licenses granted under this Section 2.10 are specifically set
forth herein, and no licenses are granted by 3Com to Licensee by implication or
estoppel to the Modifiable Source Code."

3 OWNERSHIP. The following is added to the end of Section 10.1 of the License
Agreement:

        "Subject always to 3Com's ownership of the Palm Software and the
restrictions set forth in Section 2 above, Licensee shall be the sole and

3Com, upon 3Com's request, copies of all Modifications. Licensee hereby grants
to 3Com a worldwide, nonexclusive, fully paid, royalty free, perpetual and
irrevocable license to use, reproduce, modify, display and distribute the
Modifications in source code and/or executable form, including the right to
sublicense such rights through single or multiple tiers of distribution."

4 TERMINATION. Except as expressly provided in this Section 4, this Amendment,
and all rights and obligations under this Amendment, shall terminate and be of
no further force or effect if there is a material change in the ownership or
control of Licensee such that more than twenty percent (20%) or more of the
voting equity stock of Licensee is owned and/or controlled (directly or
indirectly) by one or more Competitors. In the event of such termination,
Licensee shall promptly (i) cease all modification of the Palm Source Code, (ii)
return all Modifiable Source Code to the extent such source code has not
previously been provided to Licensee under Amendment No. l to the License
Agreement, including, but not limited to, all copies thereof in whole and in
part, to 3Com, and (iii) destroy all copies thereof, in whole and in part,
residing within any computers in Licensee's control. Notwithstanding the
foregoing, in the event of termination of this Amendment pursuant to this
Section 4, in no event shall such termination affect Licensee's rights to
reproduce and distribute in object code form Modifications existing as of the
effective date of such termination pursuant to Section 2.10(ii).

5 ENTIRE AGREEMENT. The parties agree that this Amendment and any Attachments
made effective pursuant to this Agreement constitute the entire agreement
between the parties relating to its subject matter and supersedes all prior or
simultaneous representations, discussions, negotiations, and agreements, whether
written or oral; provided, however, that the License Agreement, except as
modified by this Amendment, remains in full force and effect.
