Atomica Unveils GuruNet 4.0

Mar 11, 2003

Atomica Corporate has announced the immediate availability of GuruNet 4.0, an advanced version of its application for Windows PCs, and the successor to Atomica Slingshot. With a single click on any word or phrase on the screen, GuruNet delivers real-time and reference information, including dictionary and encyclopedia terms, thesaurus, acronyms, technical terms, company descriptions, stock quotes, biographies, news, sports, weather, maps, translation, and more. GuruNet's technology displays a pop-up window on demand, without interrupting users' work. It is designed to work within any Windows application: email, Office, enterprise apps and web browsers. Answers are activated by an alt-click on any word on the screen; GuruNet provides an instant definition, overview or snapshot description. As opposed to traditional search engines, which index the billions of pages on the Web, GuruNet displays pre-compiled and organized reference data from over 50 content sources. It eliminates the need for the user to follow links back and forth serially, hunting for relevant facts. Rather, it delivers reference information in a summary. Among GuruNet's improvements are: user interface innovations; richer, more dynamic content; expanded customization; instant audible word pronunciation; and an advanced power query capability. Atomica aims to streamline both personal communication and business research by providing simplified access to premier reference resources. In addition to single end-users licenses, the company offers educational, corporate, and large-organization group discounts.
