To Buy or Not to Buy?

Decide is a big idea website that will help not only those of us who struggle to make the smallest decisions, but also those who have a bigger choice to make in terms of technological purchases.

The problem is that the rapid rate at which technology evolves can often leave consumers with a feeling of buyer’s remorse if they discover that there’s now a newer version of that laptop, TV or camera that they just bought.

On Decide, which launched yesterday, the experience is simple: Search for a product and get an immediate buy or wait recommendation, along with a machine-generated prediction on when to buy and a percentage indicating Decide’s confidence in that prediction.

A quick Decide search for a particular Samsung Plasma HDTV, for instance, will yield a “wait” because the site predicts that prices for that model, with 87% confidence, are expected to drop $92 within two weeks. For more info, click here.
