Wow that's potentially got some clever stuff. But, as you say, it's only got stuff on fashion, and I'm not into wearing earrings.

Go, Google, GO! You can do bring out a better Google search.

Call it "Google Viz"

Philipp, you're right I think it would be nice if we could combine this thing, with the Riya.com functionality and Google Image Search e.g. but my feeling is that the owner of Riya.com is now calling loud, maybe hoping that there is a bigger company buying them soon, and that there is not so much too see for the moment....

Makes me a kind of disappointed...

I agree with you Art-One. They're not necessarily trying to bring out a wonderful product; they're just trying to impress Microsoft or Yahoo, showing them how much potential they have.

Yes they have some very clever features, but they are not alone : a London based company called PIXSTA have launched www.chezimelda.com Although this is currently just a shoe store, it uses the similar technology and i understand they have many similar sites on the way. Having reviewed the two, i would say ChezImelda appears to be more of 'purist' shoppers site (although like.com is quite fun for a while).

Wrong!! I am pretty confident that Munjal Shah will never sale. He's and his team are just not in for an Exit or an IPO .. they are pretty indendent.

This is basically a reluanch efforts of their image recongization technologies over a broader base of prodcuts /entities..

Contender in this space :Polar Rose :)-
