NuffnangX App Makes It Easier to Discover and Follow Blogs from Mobile Devices

Identifies Most Relevant Line from Blog Content; Readers and Bloggers Communicate with Text-Style Messages

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- App developer NuffnangX announced today the launch of a new Android and Apple app that combs through content from thousands of blogs to select the most relevant line of text to deliver to smartphone and mobile device users, making it easier for them to follow their favorite blog authors and topics. The app transmits live feeds on selected blogs, enables subject lists to be built to discover new blogs and facilitates communication through text-style messaging between the reader and the blogger.

Based on NuffnangX's proprietary algorithm, the app identifies the most important line from any blog and presents it to the user to decide whether to read the rest of the blog. Users can build categorized lists of blogs and receive notifications in a live feed when selected blogs are updated.

A rating and recommendation feature allows NuffnangX users to critique blogs and build a database for creating lists of popular blogs across multiple topics. Users can search through this collection of recommended blogs as well as millions of other online blogs.

Another app feature allows bloggers to "claim" their own blog and access a plug-in that enables two-way communication with readers. When bloggers receives messages, they are notified on their mobile devices and can instantly respond to readers. Messages appear as text-style communication, allowing bloggers to develop personal rapport with readers and grow their audiences.

"NuffnangX presents Web users with a simple yet powerful tool to better enjoy blog content," said Timothy Tiah, co-founder of NuffnangX. "Only around one percent of all blog readers come through the mobile phone, compared to 50 percent of all Twitter and Facebook visitors. We saw the opportunity to fundamentally change the blog industry, which has remained relatively stable for nearly a decade. During beta testing of our app we saw an average time of usage per session to be 24 minutes, a considerable amount of time that showed our beta users were finding and reading quality blogs."

NuffnangX founders Timothy Tiah, who studied economics at the University of London, and Cheo Ming Shen have created several successful companies together including Nuffnang, Churp Churp, Jipaban and RippleWerkz Studios.  The Malaysian and Singaporean entrepreneurs were named by Business Week as two of the Top 25 Young Entrepreneurs in Asia.

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
