One of the rarely cited benefits of cloud computing is that small bioinformatics startup companies now have a fighting chance to demo and market the kind of ambitious compute solutions which traditionally only more established institutions or companies had the funding to support. Software tools for dealing with big data that previously would have required cost prohibitive IT infrastructures to run can now be spun up on several nodes in the cloud, on the fly and on the cheap. This enables startups to provide working versions of their technology to build interest among investors and the user community until that lucky day when their technology is licensed out by a big institutional or commercial customer.

WebLib, a start-up company which won a Department of Energy (DOE) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant, managed by the Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI), has just won a celebrated Challenge.gov contest using technology developed for DOE.
Phil Bradley search engine expert put out a list of search engines with special features, which includes AllPlus in two different categories: "Visual results search engine" (for using a cluster graph) and "Blended results" (for clusters, web results, news, images, video).
The allplus.com beta test demonstration site allows users to query all major Web content sources, including Google, Yahoo and Ask.com Web pages, News, Images, Videos and Blogs. The results are compared and ranked and presented to the user in an intuitive and clearly organized way.
Over 400 people have downloaded the Android version of HealthMash and we are happy to read our customers' feedbacks. Among these messages there were some calling our attention on a bug in the Android application of HealthMash, i.e. one willing to search from the main page with a mistyped query would not meet the "Did you mean?" suggestion, post-search. This bug has been fixed since then and we are glad you helped us making the HealthMash Android app better.
