Real-time Inventory Tracking is Hard…techworkingkrillion.jpgwalmart.jpg

Thu, 11 Oct 2007 16:07:49 +0000

It’s hard enough for retailers. Harder still for third-parties like Krillion. ConsensusBest doesn’t (yet) include television recommendations. So, being in the market for a simple, standard TV, I checked out this service which aggregates online/offline retail information with user reviews. We’ve written about them before, taking issue with their focus on the big national […](image)

Attention Capital Region Shoppers…techworkingbabylandny2.jpg

Wed, 10 Oct 2007 19:58:20 +0000

Albany, NY retailer Babyland is going out of business, according to local press reports. Babyland carries some ConsensusBest-recommended products. It looks like the store will be open for another month or so. After that, we’ll remove it from our database. Until then, though, it’s probably a great place to pick up some going-out-of-business bargains on […](image)

  It’s no coincidence that the top11 point-and-shoot digital cameras, and 14 of the top 20, on’s bestseller list are from Canon. We’ve been updating the ConsensusBest digital camera lists (as with any electronics, the constant flood of new products makes that a challenge) and were struck by the popularity of so many Canon […](image)

What Does an Idepenedent Review Source’s Acquisition Mean for its Credibility?techworkingdpreview.gif

Tue, 15 May 2007 17:42:06 +0000

Longtime fans of are understandably worried that the digital photography review site’s recently-announced acquisition by Amazon will hurt editorial independence. Also understandably, the site’s founder is focused only on the upside: “We’ve worked very hard over the last eight years to deliver consistently high quality content to our readers”, founder Phil Askey said. “It […](image)

Already one of our broadest categories, baby products gets even bigger today with the addition of four great baby monitors. We always try and have a minimum of four products up before announcing a new category (ideally, one in each price category), but more are on the way soon. Subscribe to our RSS feed for […](image)

Beware friendly PR folks bearing strange questions.techworking

Thu, 05 Apr 2007 16:40:01 +0000

As a former newspaper reporter, I would have hoped to be more on my toes when a rep from a Boston PR firm called last month following the story in the PoJo. What was disconcerting was this was a woman who I’d traded e-mails with after I notified her that one of her clients had […](image)

Greg Sterling points us to a provocative proposal from Ahmed of iBegin. Specifically, he advocates upfront fees and invites to separate the wheat from the chafe when it comes to user reviews. Now that user reviews are a standard feature on every “local” site, it’s painfully obvious that more is not necessarily better and that […](image)

Poughkeepsie Journal business reporter Sarah Bradshaw came to campus last week to speak with the team. She asked a lot of great questions. Her article from today’s paper is here. As it says, ConsensusBest is still in its infancy. With your help, we know we can build the site into a great shopping resource […](image)

Is it Local Search Without “Local” Storestechworkingkrillion.png

Mon, 05 Feb 2007 18:35:36 +0000

VentureBeat has a writeup of new local appliance search site Krillion. It’s a good-looking site with a nice UI. The problem I see is that it “solves” the easy part of the problem. A search on “white General Electric refrigerators,” for example, yields 95 results across a handful of national chains (Best Buy, Lowe’s, etc.). […](image)
