Visual Cues.

Happy Belated Cyber Monday!

Ever since I've worked at Amazon, there's been ongoing discussions on how people respond to images. We did several rather interesting brain-storming sessions with Udi Manber (once former CEO) on image search, and when A9 launched with an Image search column, the positive response was overwhelming. Google even launched a similar web/image search UI with Today in all the online shopping madness I came across Imagini, a site that presents the user with a series of visual cues and decides on the makeup of your Visual DNA. I'm not sure how expansive the catalog is, but I liked everything that they suggested... until I found out that the prices were all in Euros.. and I realized that I couldn't afford anything.
