Wireless froogling

Wireless froogling: The news about Froogle Wireless is several weeks old, however, it only recently occurred to me to bookmark the URL http://wml.froogle.com on my Treo 600. At a bookstore over the weekend, I simply entered a book’s ISBN number into the search field (the only interface element on the screen) and within a second or two, a list of prices appeared. I still purchased the book at my local bookseller, but was duly impressed.

So much for that ridiculous camera-phone-bar-code-scanner-gimmick I’ve scoffed at before (and here).

    It may finally be time to get rid of my 4+ yr old cell phone.
