We bring the power of search behind it with blekko, and we turn the search engine inside out creating white labeled news feeds around the best content from the best sites on the web.”
ROCKZi is the destination to discover, collect, and consume news. The news site features high quality news stories and organizes them by topic. With ROCKZi, users are socially driving news and collecting stories by voting up an article, leaving a comment, or submitting links, while curating and interacting with news stories they care about.
