A few months back google switched from their old Image search to a new one where the preview is shown within the search results by opening up a box. It’s a Content First move from google and it works really well. To begin with: It allows the user to stay on the same page and see the [...]
Why sites should try and know their Users?
When we buy a shiny sports shoe for running / jogging / walking / drinking beer or whatever, if you bought it from an E-Commerce store, chances are, they will recommend you other shoes that you can buy! Very few take the route of Often Bought Together and actually show you a Show Cleaning Kit, Socks. After [...]
What are you selling?
Are you selling what people are searching? Or are you just pushing things. Most common thing in today’s e-commerce is that when a product is not available, we put a Big Large Block with a JS Scroller and fancy jQuery saying “People who saw this product also saw this”.

Toshiba libretto® W100 Dual-Screen Laptop PC
Toshiba libretto® W100 Dual-Screen Laptop PC. Sometime back when the iPad popped out from Apple’s stable, I kind of wished something like this was offered by Apple instead of the current iPad. I think the iPad is beautiful but it’s just not really a useful device. The Liberto “looks like” it has its basics correct. [...]
Pulse – Alphonso Labs
