Search Pioneer X1 Technologies to be Showcased at FiRe 2010

PASADENA, CA – May 4, 2010 Strategic News Service is proud to announce that X1 Technologies has been selected as a 2010 FiReStarter company, to be featured at its annual Future in Review technology conference. FiReStarter companies are selected based on their potential to bring positive change to the world, and are showcased during the conference, both at an exclusive investor reception and in panels throughout the conference.

X1 Technologies was founded in 2003 with the mission to make it easier to find emails, files, and data on networked computers. Their patented search solution allows people to access all forms of data, from email inboxes to contracts in document management systems to archived email, all through a single, elegant interface. X1's patented fast-as-you-type™ search experience is like no other and is a key reason why millions of people use X1 for finding information. Unlike search products that mimic web search engine tools, X1 provides an interactive search experience that allows a user to quickly find what they are looking for by entering search criteria and seeing the results as they type.

"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to introduce the power and elegance of X1 to the attendees of Future in Review – a group that manages a tremendous amount of information and will immediately understand the value of a single interface for quickly finding any file or email in their personal repository," said John Waller, CEO of X1 Technologies and scheduled speaker at FiRe 2010.

Future in Review is an annual gathering of world-class thought leaders in technology and economics. Now in its eighth year, Future in Review 2010 will take place May 11-14th at the beautiful Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes, California. The Economist has called FiRe "The best technology conference in the world." This year's FiRe will feature keynote speaker Nathan Lewis, George L. Argyros Professor of Chemistry, California Institute of Technology, on the key issue of "Scaling Alternative Energies."

"The greatest problem facing 21st Century workers and learners is search, and Google is not close to solving this problem. X1 is a real leader in focused search of personal files and other information I care about, satisfying a need which is growing logarithmically today," said Mark Anderson, FiRe Chair and SNS CEO.

Other speakers at FiRe 2010 will include Ray Ozzie, Chief Software Architect, Microsoft; Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO, NVIDIA; Paul Jacobs, CEO, Qualcomm; Steve Squyres, Principal Investigator of the Mars Exploration Rover Mission (MER) and Goldwin Smith Professor of Astronomy at Cornell University, on "Finding Life on Mars"; John Cramer, Science Fiction Author and Professor Emeritus, Physics, University of Washington on "Quantum Time Reversal"; John Delaney, Professor of Oceanography and Jerome M. Paros Endowed Chair in Sensor Networks and Director, Regional Scale Nodes Program, University of Washington, on building the world's first broadband ocean-floor remote sensing network; and many more.
