Over 300MM ads served on the Genieo platform
HERZLIYA, Israel, March 11, 2014: Genieo the easy to use newspaper-styled homepage, today confirmed that it is the preferred personalized homepage for millions of Mac users.
The platform is delivering over 100MM unique monthly page views, serving more than 300MM ads and the average Genieo user spends over two minutes reading articles every day.
Genieo's personal homepage, originally launched in 2010, was developed using proprietary algorithms based on Micro Behavioral Targeting, which automatically extracts user behavior, interests and preferences.
As a result, the user can create a personalized news portal, which collects content from various channels, such as news sites, blogs and social networks. The technology dynamically analyzes changes in the user's topics of interest, and frequently updates the portal.
Genieo has succeeding in doing something that the world's internet giants have long strived to achieve, by developing the only real personalized news content service that immediately learns the user's preferences while preserving the user's privacy. Genieo needs no configuration.
What's more, Genieo is a client-based newsreader that runs in the user's web browser, acting as the default start page, showing news and other information based on the user's interests. Once installed, Genieo goes to work and it gets better the more it is used, it is a learning engine.
Sol Tzvi, CEO, Genieo comments: "Genieo is changing the way we consume information. It is a client-based news reader that seeks to understand what you read, what your social circle finds interesting, and also helps you to discover new content. It does this all without any user input as it doesn't require any user preference settings, or keywords.
"It's also careful about privacy. Genieo disables itself whenever there is a financial service or payment, or any other type of personal content, maintaining personal privacy as a priority."
Genieo also delivers new revenue opportunities for publishers, advertisers and software providers.
Publishers can increase the prominence of content and make it easier to access directly by distributing a branded version of Genieo. This will help to increase the content's appeal to users, and develop user-loyalty.
Genieo's personalized content and unique user experience also attracts a loyal and active audience, offering advertisers an exceptional opportunity to target content according to the audiences' interests and intentions. This also ensures that advertisements will be more relevant to the user.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
