An App I Want

Any programmers out there reading the Ping that are looking for program ideas, here you go… I would love an app that would keep a wish list of books, music, and movies. By request or at a specified interval, this app would notify me of the lowest price on the web for each item so that rather than keeping separate wish lists at different sites, I’ll always know where the lowest price is at any given time. A nice bonus would be if it also scanned certain coupon sites to keep an eye open for deals at particular online stores.

And, yes, I’d be willing to pay for it. Just no spyware, please. -ram

As a chronic luddite, I'm shocked this doesn't exist already. Futhermore, I can't believe Ryan can't write it up during his lunch break!

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
