Re: Wanted: Medium for Product Reviews - http://hunterwalk.com/2014...
"I thought the original gdgt.com did a great job with the concept of crowdsourced product reviews of consumer electronics (they now power the product reviews section of engadget). One particularly engaging feature was the ability to quickly add products to either the Have, Had, or Want list which is, of course, a great way for advertisers to target you. 90 day price history graphs and affiliate "buy now" buttons also make for a nice revenue opportunity. Anyone see something like this for other verticals? Good Reads for books and cellartracker.com for wine. Any others?" - ian kennedy
