* ''Real-world metaphor.'' eWorld is modeled on the metaphor of a community. It's an electronic neighborhood of colorfully illustrated buildings, plazas, and pavilions, each representing a specified area of the on-line service -- for example, a Library for research, a Newsstand for current events, a Computer Center for assistance and software, and a Community Center for chatting with other members and viewing a listing of events.

* ''Advanced electronic-mail system.'' eWorld users can easily communicate with one another, as well as with users of the Internet and other electronic-mail services through mail gateways that simplify addressing. eWorld also offers a range of real-time interactive communications capabilities, such as lectures, forums, and Town Meetings, which allow up to 250 users to participate simultaneously. Smaller groups can chat and collaborate electronically in both public and private forums. And in the future, the service's communications capabilities are expected to incorporate Apple's Open Collaboration Environment ([[Apple Open Collaboration Environment|AOCE]]) technologies, to provide integration with [[PowerTalk]] services.
