Compare Prices With Cell Phone
ScanBuy does it again. These guys are doing a terrific job of exposing the physical world connection. It also appears the service providers are starting to listen too.
This story was on my local NBC news last night.
Oliver Attia is the CEO of Scan-Buy , which offers software that you can download to a cell phone that has a camera.
When you are shopping, you just line up your camera with the bar code and Scan-Buy almost instantly gives you a product description and customer ratings, and you can compare the price you see on the shelves with the prices available from e-tailers.
If you want the item you see listed online, one-click buying is possible from your phone.
Attia said Verizon and Sprint are in discussions with the company.
