Pricechart.com ?!

Ever search for a product on the used market? Surf for hours on amazon, ebay or Craigslist for something you want?

Keep watching that price move up and down by 10-15$ a day over weeks.. then see a sudden 100$ drop and the thing keeps going..

and someday when the "price is right" and your extended budget meets the price, the order button is clicked?

Would it not be nice to have a graph of the products price from the time it was introduced into the market to the day of the search show up? just like stock prices?

That way you could do an extrapolation and take your chances?

If facebook can map out all friend routings and come up with a world map, or if google can know anything and everything about me, this should not be that difficult to do, right?

This should be real good for anyone buying a car of a certain model and make and year where they get an average selling price drop over time.. granted there will be a spread on the data based on mileage. still you should be able to see the data.

Same thing for a camera or lens or any other gizmo that has a lifespan of a few years!

Looks like Pricechart.com is not taken yet.. since I am not ready to quit my day job and take this up, feel free to if you have the time and think it is a worthy idea...

You have one potential user for the site!

If you already know a site that does that do point me towards it.
