Re: [Sigia-l] A different kind of shopping experience
> This is no gimmick - it's a great example of doing something right for a niche
For the record, I hadn't declared it a gimmick. I genuinely don't know since
I'm not a shopping type. I am glad, however, that you said it was designed
for a niche audience. The part that I don't get is the "iPod-killer"
phenomenon of declaring anything new a vanquisher of the dominant, like the
LA Times did with its "searching for items in a text-based format is so
1999" quip. Having said all that, I'm still stuck at color as departure
point vs. a facet. Does your wife actually "surf" eBay serendipitously or
does she look for specific items to purchase? And if the latter, would she
start with Etsy/color in lieu of the traditional eBay UI?
