Amazon iPhone App: Take a Picture, Buy

Want to buy more crap? Well, tomorrow Amazon will be releasing its iPhone app, which will allow users to take a picture of anything and then get an Amazon page to buy that thing. So how the hell does this work? Magic? Amazing technology? Nope – Amazon has a team of people actually matching up every photo to products on Amazon.com. They recieve the photo you send to them and then get back to you with an answer in anywhere from five minutes to 24 hours. OK, so it’s not perfect, but it technically does what it says it’s going to do. And it allows you to do your Christmas shopping without really having to think about it. Sweet! Read more here.
