I personally have a real need for this because this often happens to me while shopping. I hate wasting my time trying to find a similar product in another store. This new service presently only works online, not over a phone. But just wait a moment; it's coming.

Best Shopping Help Ever
Here's the scene. I am at a mall and I see some shoes I like but the price is too high. I pull out my camera phone and upload a picture of the shoes to like.com, along with my current GPS location or zip code. In response I get a localized list of merchants who carry similar shoes, even their current prices. Some are even at the same mall I'm at. Now I know exactly where to shop at next.
