BUDAPEST, HUNGARY 1/6/09 -- Power of the Dream Ventures, Inc. (OTC BB: PWRV), Hungary's premier technology acquisition and development company, today announced that in4, Ltd. a Hungarian software company in which PDV owns substantial equity, is preparing to launch a Public Beta of iGlue, in4's internet search and content organizer application on January 31st, 2009.
iGlue is an integrated online content manager and search engine that goes beyond today's widespread, language-dependant search mechanisms based on identifying character strings. iGlue identifies and manages entities, not keywords. Whether he is called Alejandro Magno, Büyük İskender or Lissandru lu Granni, these names all refer to the same person; Alexander the Great, and most likely we would like to find information about the person himself. This is the principle iGlue uses to manage entities appearing in web content, and it will find relevant information even if the given element appears in a form that is different from what we used in launching the search.
The Public Beta of iGlue will include:
- added support for Internet Explorer 6.0 or better. iGlue already supports Firefox, Chrome and Safari.
"Upon the initial launch of the iGlue demo last year we received a multitude of inquires on when the product would be available in Beta. The time is now near. We again ask the user community to give us feedback, in terms of features and usability, to help us make iGlue as user friendly as possible." commented Viktor Rozsnyay, CEO of Power of the Dream Ventures.
The current iGlue demonstrator and its accompanying Blog can be accessed at http://www.iglueit.com
Power of the Dream Ventures acquired equity in in4, Ltd in 2007 and has been financing development of the product. PDV currently owns 40% of in4, Ltd.
