TechSelector is a new service for gadget newbies. You basically answer a few questions, run down a list of suggestions, and check out through any number of retail websites. For example, when you look for an MP3 player, it asks you what type you’re looking for — hard drive, flash, or CD (!!) — and then run downs the list of options until it brings up a few possibilities. When I ran through it a few times, it gave quite a few obvious choices and seemed to be a valuable suggestion engine.
Will it replace a quick call to your geek friends? Nope. However, if you are that geek friend of which we speak, you might want to send folks over to check it out.
