Yippy, Inc. provides secure family friendly online web destinations and services such as search, email, cloud applications, storage and a full featured web browser, primarily to family PCs, learning institutions and libraries in North America. Yippy.com is one of the most robust, visually appealing, family friendly properties on the internet. The company provides an unparalleled approach to safe web browsing and application aggregation. Yippy creates environments around conservative family values and provides all the tools necessary for all aspects of online activities.
Our business encompasses multiple activities culminating in the design, development and deployment of internet properties and cloud computing applications and solutions enabled through the applications services environment (ASE) that has been fully developed and integrated by the company. The applications services environment (ASE) includes software applications, entertainment content, advertising, datacenter infrastructure, and client support for our business which is focused on the education, family and youth markets, as such it is our intent to actively filter general web content for our users.
Application Services Environment: (ASE):
The Yippy ASE has been in operation for nearly 21 months. The custom database driven system has had a 100% uptime operational efficiency. The ASE enables Yippy or a software license holder to quickly and efficiently aggregate multiple properties, applications and functions tied to advertising, video and/or dynamic GUIs for user interface. It's skin-able, flexible and agile super sets connect and create environments or themes in days not weeks or months reducing significantly development expense. The ASE also enables a single operator to run every aspect of the program replacing the human element and dramatically reduce operating costs. Yippy's ASE would be a perfect choice to create web based user interfaces for all types of wireless devices, especially for Linux / PC based Pads, net books and notebook computers.
The Yippy browser is the first operational full featured flash enabled browser custom built on an Adobe Air platform. In current state the browser performs remarkably well on PC, Linux and Mac operating systems (Ipad excluded). The Yippy browser's unique design and features make it a perfect first browser for youth, a second browser for adults and the primary browser for the shared home PC. The browsers content filtering and ease of use are a natural fit for learning institutions. The browser has performed well over the first 10 months of its initial public beta release. The speed is comparable to IE and the browser has performed exceedingly well on 3G & 4G enabled PCs. Modifications, improvements and testing on Linux and PC based pads are underway.
The Company provides the most efficient research engine in the world. The Yippy search "Cloud" provides the user a deep research information cluster which dramatically improves content and information mining saving the researcher time and potentially creating new relationships through information not previously realized. Yippy has improved its content filtering of undesirable sites and has been continually working with Vivisimo to improve the flexibility of the consumer search products. While the company has had issues with code performance, and flexibility of the user interfaces that was Clusty.com, this is not true of Velocity the software engine that drives Yippy's search. Management contends that Velocity is a very powerful piece of software and in the correct format for Yippy consumer - user / advertising / filtering - configuration could be a dominate force for search.
While no company can claim perfection in content filtering Management believes that the Generation II of Yippy search will be one of the most powerful and useable filtered search engines available. Yippy Search Gen II's estimated release is spring 2011. Gen II removes unwanted sites from results no matter what keywords are used. This should nearly eliminate inadvertent viewing of inappropriate material through the Yippy family of search engines and allow the company to expand market share in the following areas initially with a focus on RESEARCH not search.
- Educational Institutions
- Children Health Care Organizations
- Non-Profit Conservative Organizations
- Conservative Political Organizations (i.e. Tea Party ) 2012 Election
- Judeo-Christian Organizations
- Home School Organizations
The Company has made several marketing test in multiple DMAs in the US and Canada in all forms of media. The results of these tests have given management a clear understanding of the market and the opportunities it will re-engage in Spring - Summer - Fall 2011 marketing programs.
Our current geographic focus is North America, UK, Australia and New Zealand.
Through the reporting period, the Company announced and executed upon two key acquisitions.
- Yippysoft, Inc. is a software company whose properties include a cloud based applications services environment, entertainment content including video, audio, and games, and an integrated media advertising engine under the brand name "Yippy". The company announced its intention to acquire Yippysoft, Inc. and its holdings in January 2010.
- Clusty, a search engine, was acquired in May 2010 from Vivisimo, Inc. Clusty was a clustering search engine put into service in 2004. Yippy acquired the Clusty search program, associated domains and an unrestricted, non competitive (consumer search) and fully transferable license for the software engine known as "Velocity".
NEW ANNUAL REPORT OUT SEPT 2012:
FROM FILING/ANNUAL REPORT DATED SEPT 22,2012
The Company has entered into a non-binding letter of intent with The Gale Group, Inc.
relating to the Company's proposed acquisition of the HighBeam business segments

applications, storage, web browser and extensions. Yippy.com is one of the most robust,
visually appealing, family friendly properties on the Internet. The Company provides a distinct
approach to safe web browsing and application aggregation. Yippy creates environments around
traditional family values and provides all the tools necessary for all aspects of online activities.
Our business also encompasses multiple activities culminating in the design, development and
deployment of Internet properties, vertical search applications and solutions enabled through the
applications services environment (ASE). Yippy holds an unlimited, worldwide license for
software known as "Velocity" through Vivísimo, Inc., a subsidiary of IBM. This program allows
for the creation of search-based applications quickly and efficiently. The applications services
environment (ASE) includes software applications, entertainment content, advertising, datacenter
infrastructure, and client support for our businesses.
Yippy also provides K-12 learning products and sophisticated custom search products to higher
learning institutions. Yippy can be private labeled for educational companies, school districts

an unlimited amount of information databases. Yippy's active and passive filters written
specifically for Velocity scrub search results providing a robust research information cluster on
topic and devoid of objectionable material. Additional active filters were recently created to
override all major browsers through extension technologies.
Item 9. The Nature of Products or Services Offered.
Yippy is used primarily by schools, libraries and other higher learning institutions as a search
and learning application. Yippy incorporates a family friendly search engine and browser with
email, television, gaming, news, movies, social networking, streaming radio, office applications,
shopping, and free cloud based storage all into its exclusive application services environments
(ASE). Yippy's browser and extensions include the strongest parental/educational controls
available in the industry. The combination of Yippy's application services environment and a
cloud based browser and extensions has helped tremendously in the growth of the Company
A. Principal Products or Services, and Their Markets
Yippy (YippyHUB) - i2 Cloud
The YippyHub (formally called Application Services Environments - ASE) is the foundation of
the Company's online presence. Over the past three years, the Company has strived to create a
virtual cloud devoid of irresponsible content, with a primary focus on the English speaking
markets worldwide. Using the YippyHub as the foundation allows for the creation of virtual
environments with the common thread being The Yippy Cloud. The Company's interest in the
Internet market transcends that of application based businesses such as search, gaming, and
social networking as these are just mere online applications.
The YippyHub in basic terms is the "Internet" through a software enabled web-based cloud.
Yippy provides the online "choice". The "choice" in most cases will be based on personal or
corporate morality. The Company sees a distinct need to curate the most useful destinations on
the web, and remove objectionable, repetitive, and pornographic material from being accessed
through the YippyHub.
This is accomplished by the ability to convert and control all major browsers post YippyHub
installation. This includes Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera and Google Chrome, which
post YippyHub installation, operates as a Yippy device during web based activities by the user.
This proprietary wholly owned technological breakthrough allows Yippy control of the
"Internet" at the device level. Management believes there is a very large need for device
management for children, moral adults and business owners. The YippyHub fills that void
through a highly respected software program designed since inception for the purpose of
providing that kind of control to the user.
YippyHub functionality includes but not limited to the following:
-Client-Server Interactions - Database Bridge and Connectors
- Auto Authentication - Business Intelligence
- Data Storage - "Federated" Search
- Calculations of any Type - Enterprise Content Management
- Detailed Analytics - E-Discovery
- "Federation" of Content - Curated Social Platforms
- Social Software in the Workplace ? Big Data Integration Tools
- Real-Time Curated Content/Filtering - Unlimited Web-based Applications
- Real-Time YippyHub Customizations
The YippyHub enhances or replaces most client side programs and other equivalents.Another
advantage to this technology is that it allows user to surf the Internet and access other nonfiltered
content such as search engines with substantial active filters in place. The YippyHub is
designed to detect objectionable sites on click. YippyHub takes advantage of the latest web
technologies and internal developed software to create content rich, visually appealing interfaces
for consumers and businesses that are fully customizable.
Yippy Search Engine
Yippy's search application, formerly known as Clusty, got its start in Pittsburgh, PA, in 2004,
when the search software company Vivísimo decided to take its award-winning search
technology to the web. Vivísimo was founded in 2000, by three Carnegie Mellon University
scientists who decided to tackle the problem of information overload in web searches. Rather
than focusing just on search engine result rankings, they realized that grouping results into
topics, or "clouds," made for better search and discovery. As searching became a necessity for
web users, Vivísimo developed a service robust enough to handle the variety of information the
everyday web user was after. The result was Clusty, an innovative way to get more out of every
search. Clusty was acquired by Yippy in May 2010.
Yippy queries several top search engines and research sites combining the results, and generates
an ordered list based on comparative ranking. This approach helps raise the best results to the
top and push search engine spam to the bottom. What really makes Yippy unique is what
happens after a user searches. Instead of delivering only search results, Yippy search groups
similar results together into "Clouds" or clusters. The Clouds help separate search results by
topic so the searcher can zero in on exactly what they are searching for. This is especially useful
for students of all ages.
Yippy allows students to access normally blocked search keywords such as "breasts" or "sexual
health", as examples, without generating pornographic results and allows access to websites that
are blocked by "dumb" software/hardware giving educators more time to teach and less time
overriding other K-12 protective programs. This is enhanced by Yippy's access to non-public
information repositories that provide access to thousands of periodicals, magazines, newspapers,
books, articles, journals not available on any other search engines and combining with the best of
Yippy Federated Search (Data as a Service)
Yippy subscribers can identify infinite items of interest, tailored specifically to their
specifications, and have access to multiple sources of information that are not connected from a
single point of access. Yippy bridges the gap between traditional and enterprise search, social
networks, news feeds, and other content sources through a web-based cloud architecture. Yippy
does the heavy lifting, saving time, money and personnel requirements by offering curated
content in all forms, delivered through a single point of access.
