Globat.com Helped MillionDollarHomepage.com's Founder to Become a Millionaire!

Globat.com Helped 21-Year-Old British Student-Entrepreneur to Become First Ever 'Pixel Millionaire'

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Los Angeles-based Globat.com(R), the world-leader in Performance Web Hosting(TM), today announced that the company is happy to see that Internet "Pixel King" Alex Tew and his now world-famous MillionDollarHomepage.com is only 1,000 pixels away from achieving his mission to become the first pixel millionaire on the Internet. The young British student and entrepreneur founded MillionDollarHomepage.com just over 4 months ago with the goal to sell pixels of his homepage space to advertisers for a dollar each to fund his university education. Globat.com was one of the very first major supporters of Alex's idea and the investment has paid off for the firm multifold.

"We gained tremendous exposure and also sent a message to young entrepreneurs world-wide that creativity and ingenuity will always capture the interest of progressive companies such as Globat. In Alex I saw the purest form of entrepreneurship. He set a high goal and succeeded," said Ben R. Neumann, President and CEO of Globat.com. "With our Web hosting services, we continue to support tens of thousands of entrepreneurs, but Alex's achievements appealed to us so greatly that we want to support such an imaginative entrepreneurial effort directly."

Alex Tew, 21, came up with the MillionDollarHomepage.com idea in late August of 2005. In early September the site went live and Globat.com made a substantial investment into Alex' pixel idea. Word rapidly spread across the Internet and through the media. Within 4 months Alex sold 999,000 pixels, enough to fund his three year university education many times over, with several hundred thousand dollars to spare. He is currently auctioning off his final 1,000 pixels on eBay(R). MillionDollarHomepage.com created media frenzy all over the world and received millions of visitors, making it one of the busiest sites on the Internet today. "Globat.com was very quick to support my efforts to become the first Internet pixel millionaire, and I appreciate their dedication to support creative entrepreneurs," said pixel millionaire Alex Tew.

The Million Dollar Notebook is for sale!

Dear Sir,

Here is the real thing behind the success of
Mr.Alex Tew:

I am 31yrs old, and i live in Budapest.
The selling pixel idea came upon my pixel fault
notebook. I wanted to bring it back on guarantee, and
it made me wonder, how much a pixel is worth for. Then
came the idea to sell pixels. On the same day i
met him on the web (i knew him before) and he asked me
for help. Then i shared this brilliant idea with him
over the internet upon his request that he needs
money.
"Own a piece of internet history" and "Selling Pixels"
are created myself, but "milliondollarhomepage" was
his own idea. He did not understand what is it, until
i took the time to explain him step by step.
I told him: "try for your studies".
Cut it short the idea is mine and not his at all, He
just integrated it into the milliondollarhomepage
environment.

Best regards from Hungary

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
