80Legs: A Web Crawler as a Service

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 80Legs App StoreIn addition to the big news about the service’s public launch, 80Legs is also revealing their development program. With this new feature, developers can write their own applications that run on top of the 80Legs service and then make them available to others through a soon-to-launch “app store.” Here, other customers can browse and purchase apps that suit their needs whether it’s something for media analysis, market research, sentiment analysis, or whatever else the developer comes up with. The developers get to set their own CPR price for the apps and get to keep 100% of the revenue earned, too. The API for app building was actually made available to beta users a couple of months prior to DEMO, but the company plans to soon support multiple languages which will include Java, .NET, Perl, and Python, so developers can work in whichever they feel most comfortable with. While there are other ways to crawl the web, 80Legs wants to make sure that there’s nowhere else you can do it for such a small fee. If you’re interested in trying 80Legs for yourself, you can do so as of today by signing up at 80Legs.com. Use the code “RWW” to receive an additional 50% credit on top of the amount you put in. (First 50 users only). 80Legs is a web crawling and online content analysis service which first impressed us back in April at the Web 2.0 Expo. At that time, the company was launching into a private beta, but today at the DEMOfall 09 conference, they’re going live. In the time that has passed since their initial debut, the company has been working on scaling out the performance and power of their service while also preparing to launch a new feature which should appeal to both developers and non-developers alike: an “app store.” This feature allows 80Legs users to write applications that run on top of the 80Legs service and gives them the ability to share those apps with others. With 80Legs, anyone can have their very own search engine to command and control, and now thanks to the apps, they can have it do anything they like with just a click of a button. What 80Legs does is no easy feat. It provides its users a service which offers up 50,000 computers which can crawl up to 2 billion web pages per day. Yes, it’s like having your own little search engine that you can rent for a small fee. How small? 80Legs is about 50% less expensive than any other competitive service out there. While consumers may not have a use for a service such as this, there is an extensive market that does. 80Legs aims to attract customers from a wide variety of disciplines including alternate search engine developers, market researchers, IP protection services (those who go after copyright infringements, article theft, etc.), competitive intelligent services, and ad networks looking to audit their own ads and see where other ad networks are placing theirs.

first_imgMan Utd hero Ince: Two better options than joke appointment Solskjaerby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United hero Paul Ince has slammed plans to name Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as caretaker manager.Molde coach Solskjaer is expected to be named United caretaker boss after the dismissal of Jose Mourinho on Tuesday.But Ince says: “The suggestion of Ole Gunnar Solskjær makes me laugh, that has to be a joke. It’s absolute madness.”He also wrote for Paddy Power: “If it was me? I’d pick Steve Bruce today. He’s not working at the moment, and he had seven or eight years at the club. He’s been a very good, and successful manager and he more than many understands what it’s like to be a United player. Yes, he’s been sacked, but we’ve all been sacked before.”Between him and Solskjaer there’s no comparison. Plus, I’d love it to be someone English, and someone who United fans through the ages immediately recognise and say ‘I remember Steve Bruce, what a player he was.'”The only other caretaker candidate I’d choose would be Roy Keane. He’d knock those players into shape in no time, he’s managed, and he’s familiar with the club.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Over 60% of almost $340 Million from Traffic Ticket Amnesty Collected on Final Day

first_imgMinister of National Security Hon. Peter Bunting says over sixty percent of the almost $340 million collected from the recent traffic ticket amnesty was earned on the last day. The amnesty which was in effect July 1 – Dec. 31, 2012 allowed motorists to incur no additional fees or penalties on unpaidtickets issued prior to September 21, 2010, once they were paid in full. More than 21-thousand persons showed up at tax offices island wide on December 31. Minister Bunting said the Ministry of National Security is aware that there are persons with unpaid tickets who did not take advantage of the amnesty. He noted that these persons will have to settle these tickets in the traffic court when sessions resume on Monday January 7. Persons for whom warrants have been issued will first need to report to the police before going to traffic court. Special arrangements have been made for persons who had started the payment process at the JCF Traffic Division but did not get the opportunity to complete the process by Monday December 31, 2012, as the system was overwhelmed. Those persons have already been issued stamped documents from the Traffic Division verifying that they had started the process of payment before the end of the amnesty. Such persons must go to a tax office with those documents before Friday January 4, 2012 to complete the payment and secure the benefits of the amnesty. Regarding individuals who claim that they have previously paid fines for tickets which are showing up as unpaid, the Ministry of National Security, Tax Administration Jamaica and the courts will update and reconcile their databases to determine the accuracy of such claims.  Where persons who have paid for tickets during the amnesty are able to provide proof of prior payment they will be eligible for a refund.  A full report on the Traffic Ticket Amnesty and related issues will be made to the Cabinet and the Ministry of National Security will inform the public whether any additional measures will be implemented to address the issue of unpaid traffic tickets. Minister Bunting thanked all the public officials including members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force Traffic Division and Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ), who he said worked assiduously to ensure motorists were accommodated especially in the last few days of the amnesty. “I especially want to thank the team from the TAJ who worked particularly hard and well into the night to keep their offices open so that everyone could be accommodated and processed. They did a phenomenal job” Minister Bunting said.last_img read more

Nova Scotias familydoctor shortages a result of zero past action premier

first_imgHALIFAX – Opposition critics fired back Thursday after Premier Stephen McNeil said previous Nova Scotia governments did “zero” to address doctor shortages.McNeil defended his government’s record when asked why doctor shortages appear to be growing, after a Halifax emergency room physician said the number of visits to his E-R had doubled over the last five years.Following a cabinet meeting, the premier told reporters that doctor shortages are a national problem that his government has acknowledged, although he admitted there is more work to do.“Again I will argue successive governments before ours believed this issue was going to go away and did zero to address it,” said McNeil.The Progressive Conservatives held power between 1999 and 2009, while the NDP was in office from 2009 until the Liberals won the 2013 election.McNeil said his government is continuing efforts to recruit and retain doctors while it shifts the system to utilize more collaborative care teams.“We are working with our primary care teams to deal with the challenge. We have not run away from it … we actually put money in the budget.”Progressive Conservative health critic Elizabeth Smith-McCrossin said she believes health professionals and the public would say that health care was better 10 years ago — and she said McNeil needs to be accountable.“I don’t think the people of Nova Scotia are interested in a scorecard of what different political parties have done in the past. They are interested in what’s going on right now with our health care system.”NDP Leader Gary Burrill was blunt in dismissing the premier’s apportioning of the blame.“I think it is a load of disingenuous manure,” said Burrill. “It is a ridiculous deflection of responsibility, to rather than take account of their own failures to try to point this to governments that have come before.”Burrill added that blaming others this far into the government’s mandate is “weak, ineffectual, and incompetent.”Earlier this month, provincial health officials said 42,000 Nova Scotians are actively seeking a family physician, although federal statistics, which include people who aren’t looking, place that number at closer to 100,000.That’s mainly due to 60 or more doctor vacancies caused by retirements and other issues.McNeil has said governments, including his own, have been slow to implement collaborative practices, where health care teams that include physicians and nurse practitioners serve as the patient’s entry point to the health system.About 50 of more than 70 planned collaborative practice teams are currently in various stages of development.last_img read more
