that interests you, and displays them in a quick and easy to use (and
customizable!) webpage. With thousands of channels available, AmphetaDesk
can shave hours off your day - and you'll look smart to all your friends!
Egotism never had it better!
||Yodlee offers one-stop
access to all your personal online accounts, including bank and credit card
statements, stock portfolios, job searches, travel arrangements, outstanding
orders at e-merchants, news sites, Web-mail, and conventional POP3 e-mail
accounts. It's not an add-on but rather a supercustomizable portal that
doesn't limit you to the services of any specific Web portal, instead
letting you access the services provided by whichever traditional portals
you choose. If you use a mobile device, you can select a subset of your
accounts to be transmitted to it. You can access about 1,500 different
accounts through Yodlee. For many accounts, an auto-register feature lets
Yodlee do the job of registering for you. If an account you want to use
isn't on Yodlee's list, you can request that it be added or set up a custom
account by filling in a simple form.
The main display is a simple tabular list of all the accounts you selected,
with summary information such as your current balance or a list of news
headlines. You can click on the summary data to access the remote site for
more information. The screen loads quickly and in almost any recent browser.
Yodlee can be the Web portal that replaces all others—and because Yodlee
makes money by selling its technology to other online firms, it doesn't
waste your screen space with ads.
My Yodlee provides free fraud insurance which, in the unlikely event that
unauthorized online transactions occur with any of your My Yodlee accounts,
you're covered up to $100K of the loss for which you'd otherwise be
responsible for under Federal Banking Regulations.
