Business idea: Yippy

Founded by Richard Granville in October 2009, Yippy raised the bar dramatically in the web-based applications services market with the consumer release of Yippy, http://www.yippy.com.

Yippy.com is Kid-Friendly According to the U.S. Census, there are approximately 60 million children under the age of 15 living in the United States. Many of these children look to the Internet for helpful information and wholesome entertainment but end up stumbling across inappropriate content. Yippy invites you to take a look at the recently released Yippy.com, the worlds first family friendly cloud computing portal, that provides a controlled digital sandbox which allows kids to safely surf the web, engage in individual or group video-chat, e-mail, play games, listen to music, and watch videos with other kids. Completely free of charge, Yippy, http://www.yippy.com provides children with a safe and controlled cloud environment where minors will not inadvertently or purposefully access adult content. The companys Internet-based applications include games, videos, audio/music, movies, chat, news, productivity tools (email, calendar, documents, and collaboration), multi-person video conferencing, Voice-Over-Internet Protocol (VoIP), search engine, and social networking tools that are all free from the unseemly elements of the Internet and completely secure.

As a nation, we`re paying a steep cost for unlimited, uncensored access to the Internet with its contribution to the deterioration of family values and diminished employee productivity, says Richard Granville, the Fort Myers-based CEO of Yippy Inc. We must stop the theft of a childs innocence which is subject to untoward influence from web searches on unregulated search engines. Granville, age 41, is putting his money where his mouth is, having invested over $8M of his assets, along with friends and family, into the creation of this new operating system which he hopes will become the new Internet gold standard in cloud computing.

According to the US Census, the youth population is roughly 80 million individuals. There are approximately 60 million children under the age of 15 living in the United States. Our goal is to attract and secure at least 10- 20% of this population to a Yippy-based cloud platform within three years. This will translate to approximately 12to-16 million loyal users that will grow to be adults with affinity to our brands. We believe this is how a new dynasty company is formed.

The Company believes that by attracting the children, an appealing path is also forged for the parents. While the platform is currently skinned with graphics for the youth market, we believe parents will also use it as well.

Having a safe computing experience for all will be a huge advantage for the Company in the near and long term. Graphics-packs will be made available for all age groups:

Youth (12 and under) Teen (Ages 13-17) Adult (18 and over) Family Entertainment Business to Business Each user can customize their application services environment with their desired look and feel; appropriate to their age group. Content within each group will always be age appropriate. Content that is not appropriate for family and/or business values will be actively screened to ensure core values of a safe and wholesome computing, communications, and entertainment experience. For kids and teens, parents will have complete control over the content and information to which their children are exposed. Yippy is the only software environment of its kind to openly and aggressively provide these types of content-safe options.

“Yippy is one of the first end-to-end internet computing solutions to market with the family in mind from inception,” adds Granville. “Yippy is providing parents with free, easy-to-use software which ensures that children have a safer, more productive Internet experience filled with entertainment and good times.” Highlights of the Yippy.com Software and Portal:

Yippy Search -The Company recently completed the acquisition of the Clusty meta-search property from Vivisimo, Inc. Clusty is a unique meta-search engine that is already being tightly integrated into the Yippy software framework thus allowing the Company to control the search activities of its users. In this way, the company is able to ensure that the Web sites accessed by the users are continually screened enabling us to deliver on our promise of a safe, secure, family and business friendly Internet experience.

Yippy Web Browser – The browser blocks millions of undesirable websites while simultaneously vetting millions of other websites in order to release Yippy-approved sites daily.

Yippy.com Email Address Tools are made available that allow users to actively manage their email to keep their system clear of unwanted traffic. Unless a user selects to keep all emails, purge tools are available to make room for only desired emails. This storage reduction helps the company reduce costs by purging spam and unneeded email in the network which in turn reduce power requirements thus vastly improving the companys overall energy footprint.

Free Online Storage Yippy users can save pictures, movies and documents with up to 5 gigabytes in storage capacity.

Video Chat Yippy yappers can have face to face calls with loved ones and friends ensuring the whole family will enjoy the application.

Yippy Video Player This proprietary, feature-rich Yippy video player features programs from trusted media partners. Yippys growing library of family-friendly content provides ideal communal viewing for the family room flat screen television.

Games Yippys collection of old-school classics will soon expand to include lots of great new games over the coming weeks.

Radio The family can listen to the Yippy radio station which offers a wide variety of musical genres popular for the whole family.

News Theres local, national and international news focusing on sports, music, technology and a lot more all appropriate reading for the under 18 community.

Customization Yippy gives the user customization choices and many other features such as office suite, widgets and other useful applications throughout the program with many new features and applications added daily.

Yippy is the first end-to-end computing solution to market with the child in mind from inception, says Rick Lisa, President of Yippy, Inc.Yippy is providing parents with free, easy-to-use software which ensures that children have a safer, more productive Internet experience filled with entertainment and good times.

I anticipate that the availability of Yippy software will result in a collective deep sigh of appreciation from parents everywhere, says Richard Granville, CEO of Yippy, Inc.It is time to stop the theft of a childs innocence which is subject to untoward influence from web searches on under-regulated search engines.

Why is Yippy.com Cool Yippy.com combines contextual information in a cloud service that tailors Internet content to the preferences and needs of each user. Yippy is designed to be an online media store with one-touch access to video, games, news, movies, social networking, streaming radio, shopping, office applications, multi-person (up to four people) videoconferencing and IM/chat (up to 10 people in a single room). While it vastly simplifies the Web-surfing experience of the average consumer, its user interface is also built to be usable by preteen children. Yippy is unabashedly focused on providing a worry-free family Web experience based on a combination of parental proxy controls (that are currently company controlled), trusted content partners and strict enforcement of a government-registered restriction list. The user gets free access to basic Yippy content and 2GB of storage. While basic offerings will be free (supported by advertising), premium-priced applications, such as 12-person videoconferencing, 400-person IM/chat and additional storage will also be available. Yippy launched commercially on 20 March as version 0.9, and will release version 1 of its software with access to subscription-based premium services in mid-2010.

Yippy is deployed in a Web-based application services environment that functions like a virtual computer. While the Yippy application was developed with mobility in mind, Yippy`s goal is to allow users to access their personalized Yippy environment from anywhere, anytime and from essentially all the leading Internet devices. Yippy`s thin client and website architecture promises to turn PDAs, notebooks or desktops into the fastest-in-class Internet access devices. By the end of 2010, Flash-enabled smartphones with x86 processors or ARM13 products will also get a Yippy interface.

The cloud-based Yippy Web services model discussed here has three revenue streams: premium content subscription, advertising and Multiprotocol Label Switching access/VPN services. Revenue will come from ad agencies and local marketers for demographically, geographically and contextually targeted advertising, based on user-supplied registration data and aggregated dynamic transaction information.

Search is a Critical Piece of the New Yippy Model The Company recently completed the acquisition of the Clusty meta-search property from Vivisimo, Inc. Clusty is a unique meta-search engine that is already being tightly integrated into the Yippy software framework thus allowing the Company to control the search activities of its users. In this way, the company is able to ensure that the Web sites accessed by the users are continually screened enabling us to deliver on our promise of a safe, secure, family and business friendly Internet experience. Of greatest value to the Company is the fact that Clusty boasts over 120,000 regular monthly users as reported on quantcast.com. With this user frequency the Company will be able to quickly attract advertisers that will fuel the main revenue engines of the company.
