The Daily Ping

Somehow, Ryan has written over 1 million Pings; Paul, just 60.

While shopping for digital cameras online, it’s really hard to visualize how big things are. Some review sites include comparison photos, but Sizeasy actually takes that a step further.

You can enter the size of any object and compare it to the size of up to 4 others. Sizeasy then draws a semi-attractive 3D cube of the object. You can move the cubes around, hide them, and so on. It also has a few helpful reference size objects built in, such as a $100 bill, a CD case, and a pack of playing cards.

For instance, the cameras I’m considering both dwarf my current one – which in turn dwarfs an iPod. While I could figure out the latter the former certainly put things in perspective (hah! perspective!) for me. While Sizeasy’s name isn’t perfect and its logo is Web 2.0 laughable, it’s quite the useful tool.

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!
