I guess I consider myself an avid photographer, and I have been told I take some pretty amazing shots. What I wasn’t good at was selecting my first camera. They were all so darn expensive, and while I knew what I wanted the thing to do, I couldn’t for the life of me figure out which one to get. It took me over 5 months to decide. In the end I got what I was hoping for, but let’s not kid ourselves, I was just lucky.
I’m a little more camera savvy these days, but I wish back then they had Measy.com. Measy is like having a gadget guru in your family, one you can talk to right before you buy a new smartfone, e-reader, HDTV, netbook, DSLR, printer or video camera. Measy.com gathers ratings and reviews from some really respected sources and then via a short quiz about some of the more important aspects of what you’re looking for, Measy makes recommendations using those reviews coupled with your quiz answers.
From there you can get product overviews, read the review listings, and view the product from front to back with the enlarged image library. You can also compare the specs of up to 5 products at a time.
The results are tabulated with the internet reviews providing the base points and extra points are added to the product for every one of your user defined criteria that has been met. Measy.com is just getting started, but I’ll definitely be checking in with them from time to time. Why can’t everything be this Measy? I mean easy.
