New York, NY -July 19, 2004 - Amplify (www.amplify.com), an innovative software company committed to giving people greater control of their online experience, today announced a partnership with InfoSpace to provide a Web search feature for Amplify's companion toolbar and search component for www.amplify.com. Amplify's companion toolbar is the only search tool that lets users search the Web as well as search for Amps, unique Web collections created by Amplify users directly from their browser. Web search results are provided by Yahoo!, Overture and Teoma.
"As we embark on changing how Web users capture and share information, it was critical to integrate a reliable and proven search component into Amplify's companion toolbar, as well as the Web site's search feature," said Eric Goldstein, CEO of Amplify. "InfoSpace's expertise and reputation in the search field made them an optimal choice."
The InfoSpace search capability is integrated into Amplify's companion toolbar and the Amplify community. Through its companion toolbar, Amplify enables Web users to find, collect, save and share online content in personalize pages called Amps. Amps can then be shared with the Amplify Community where members and non -members can share, post, and discuss their Amps with other members of the community.
"We're excited to partner with Amplify, providing our private -label services to enhance their innovative and unique product," said Richard Pelly, president, distribution and strategic partnerships at InfoSpace."
