U.S. Soldiers – There’s an App for That…04.27.11

27 04 2011

From Wired’s Inside the Army’s App Store for War:

“If all of the bureaucratic and security hurdles can be overcome, the Army will soon launch its version of an app store, where soldiers can download Army-relevant software to their work computers and — with a little luck — mobile phones. This is what its homepage will look like.

Called Army Marketplace, it’ll start off featuring the few dozen applications that soldiers created last year during the Apps for the Army contest. Those early efforts ran the gamut from workout guides to digitized manuals for standard Army tasks. So far, there are 17 apps for Android phones and another 16 for iPhones.

But the Army Marketplace will do more than sell existing apps. It’ll help generate ideas for new ones…”

Deep Web – Explorit for Libraries…04.25.11

25 04 2011

Explorit for Libraries:

“…Faculty, researchers, doctors and students expect quick and relevant search results with the least amount of effort. Our goal at Deep Web Technologies was to make Explorit the simplest to use search solution, requiring little or no training while still being the solution that returns the  fastest, most relevant and intelligently grouped results. And, in Academic, Public, Corporate and Medical Libraries, our customers tell us we succeeded.

Explorit allows all your sources – catalogs, databases and web sites – to be searched simultaneously. Results are grouped using Intelligent Clusters and five-star Relevance Ranking, so the most relevant results are right there at the top; no further searching through a random list is needed. And those results are clearly separated – books, journals and video sources are not haphazardly combined.

With Alerts, Explorit updates your results daily, emailing only new new results right to you. It’s the most effective method to discover new knowledge for the time-pressed researcher.

Explorit is simply the best search solution available for libraries of all kinds but our ten years’ experience has taught us that this alone is not enough. This is why we empower you, the Librarian, to customize Explorit in ways that suit your particular users. No two libraries are identical; no two access the same sources or serve the same patrons. And our sole purpose as a company is to help you create what you need. Our technology, your specifications…”
