Smash Holdings, a next-generation media company, today announced a strategic partnership with Ginio Inc, the developer of the Ginio Search Engine, to power search functionality across Smash Holding’s network of content sites. Effective immediately, Ginio will be the preferred search engine provider, offering web-search, site-search, and music search as a complement to Smash Holdings' comprehensive range of brands and content, accessible to users via desktop PCs and mobile devices.
