Irwin, David. "NOT NECESSARILY dNEWS - 1985's Top Software." DATA BASED ADVISOR, December 1985. - " Best Product of 1985 - I like askSam from Seaside Software for product of the year. This is a highly personal choice. I use it every day. AskSam is versatile and free-form in nature. It lends itself to almost any king of simple data management. If you define good as fast, fun, flexible, easy to learn, and infinitely useful... SAM IT IS. Like all new programs this one has some rough edges but yet I cannot imagine a computer owner without a need for this product."
