San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 18, 2006
By the time an investor sees a ticker alert, so have millions of other investors. ZNITCH.com launched today to vault the savvy investor up the financial news food chain. ZNITCH delivers that savvy investor news alerts from non mainstream sources who have their ears closer to the ground.
Niche websites like those of pundits, analysts, bloggers, critics and industry experts can deliver early market sentiment and shape public perception. These are the very sources the big news outlets like the WSJ use in their own early warning network.
The creators of http://www.ZNITCH.com were tired of hearing about stock splits, FDA approvals, product recalls and lawsuits at the same time everyone else got the news. They wanted to know the news before anyone else had time to react. So they created ZNITCH to react in Real-Time before the market could move.
Setting their goal to be the first to know about news that effects their investments, Znitch.com was born after a series of sleepless 24/7 work shifts.
Znitch allows any user the ability to get email and/or text alerts to their cell phone when any website matches their search query.
This is distinctly different from a search engine like Google for several reasons. First, Google is historical. Google, Yahoo, MSN or any other search engine delivers matching search results from pages that are atleast 1-4 weeks old. So search engines are a research tool rather than a real-time alert response tool. Second, search engines return potentially millions of pages for the user to sift through. Znitch only returns the one single page the user already trusts and relys upon for timely news and data releases. Finally, unlike search engines that require the user to "pull" data by making a web-visit, Znitch.com selectively "pushes" data to each user's sms text or email based on their precise query matching conditions.
RSS Syndication, the one widespread example of a content pushing system, is also very different from ZNITCHing. Users of RSS feed readers and agregators select a handful of websites they trust and enjoy into one "personal homepage." This solves the problem of using bookmarks to surf between several different sites as all the text content is merged onto one single personal page.
Unlike RSS, ZNITCHing does not have any webpage count restrictions. A user can monitor a "Zillion" webpages or just one. RSS Feed Readers are only as useful as the size of a users' browser window size. More importantly, even when personally choosing the news sites that are important to a user, the vast majority of the streaming content can be of no interest. ZNITCH enables a user to pick and choose precisely which content to drive alerts and from which webpages. With the rapid proliferation of webpages on the internet today, ZNITCH becomes a real-time news, event, data culling tool.
In it's own words, The About Page of http://www.znitch.com explains, "Tell me what you wanna know about WSJ.com, Newsweek.com, PRNews Wire and Any other Financial / Legal News Site or Blog. I'll send your cell phone or email an alert when Craigslist has a new "apartment AND soho" listing. I'll tell you when DIGG.com puts "aaaz OR dirtyfratboy OR north korea" on the home page. I'll even ZNITCH on any MYSPACE user so you know when "TOM" is online.
"Oh wait!, Did I tell you that I can even ZNITCH on WSJ.com and tell you when they talk about "(Your company) OR (Your competitor)"? So now you've got no reason to be surprised. You'll be the first to know when anybody talks about you. So ZNITCH it! ZNITCH it good!"
