Camera phone price checking service: "

Ben Hammersley has been publishing ideas that have been on his to do list for some time. Since I have more ideas than time or interest to implement them, I’ll join the fun.

A clever application would be something that allows you to take a pic of a UPC code from a product with a camera phone and send it to the service. The service would scan the UPC from the picture and reply with prices and reviews from around the web. I’m not exactly sure where the business model here is though. Affiliate links are unlikely to be profitable since an in-store shopper isn’t going to typically buy the product from the links you send back.
