More Power 4 Online Shoppers

Two new tools will give online shoppers more information with which to make decisions.

1. Mpire.com is Kelly's Blue Book for everything. It uses data from Overstock, eBay, Craigslist, Amazon, etc. to show the average prices paid for an item for the past 30 days in a nice looking graph. Now you won't be easily cheated when you know the average price other folks have paid for a particular item.

2. Slide.com gives users another way to browse items in which they are interested. A user can see a slideshow on their desktop of products they are interested in buying. When the right one appears, just click and the browser pops up so you can buy it. You choose the types of products from which sites you would like to browse.
