Demo To Feature Search, E-Mail, RSS Tools

The annual conference focuses on live demos of innovative technology; products and services debuting this week include a search engine for software developers that looks for source code and technical specs on the Web; and the debut of a vendor offering enterprise software for companies with 10 employees or less.

Venture capitalists and high-tech entrepreneurs will converge at Demo 2006 this week to see the hottest innovations from unknown startups to recognizable brands. Several companies are getting a head start on announcing products they will be demonstrating.

Krugle Inc., for example, unveiled a search engine for software developers that can search the Web for source code and technical specifications.

The search engine at promises to deliver code and other technical information quickly in an easy-to-use interface. Software developers said today's search engines don't always find the source code in repositories, archives or knowledge bases.

Krugle also allows developers to add commentary in a layer that floats above the source code, and they can permanently tag code and sets of search results to easily share them with others.

Targeting small businesses, has rolled out its first product, enterprise software for companies with 10 employees or less. Mailroom is a hosted Web-based e-mail management application. It automatically sorts and organizes incoming e-mail and suggests replies based on past replies to similar emails. The application also automatically tracks all e-mail correspondence from a specific customer.

The basic service is available free at The company said setup takes 15 minutes. Paid accounts range between $19 and $199 monthly and support up to 100,000 e-mails per month.

SimpleFeed, which enables customers to select and subscribe to specific topics using real simple syndication technology, has added secure RSS feeds, automatic Web import, and self-service capabilities to its offering.

Delivering content over RSS, SimpleFeed Secure enables companies to deliver information free of phishing, spam or viruses, the company said.

With SimpleFeed's URL technology, companies can now publish RSS feeds that require a username and password. It works with any RSS reader or browser that supports username and password, such as the pending version of Microsoft Internet Explorer IE 7.

Automatic Web Import is making it easier for companies to publish content to RSS feeds automatically. They can import a Web page by cutting and pasting a URL. That page becomes a new content item in their RSS feed. It can create feeds from press releases, customer and product support information, blogs and podcasts.

SimpleFeed also announced a self-service kit for customers interested in trying the service. The version features SimpleFeed's templates and URL and is available for $99 per feed, per month
