Christmas lists are one of those things that I always forget to do each year or at least don't do that well, as I know most of the things I want most of my friends and loved ones don't have a clue what they are all about (you want top search engine rankings, gift certificate to Google Adwords, and a new blog...what???). I know I have to be real, and a new service from Froogle was fun to find today to help make it easy for them. With the holidays upon us, it probably a good time to get something together to just to make sure you don't get a bread maker, or bag of rocks this year, or even worse socks.
This comes way for the Google Blog, and it appears some of the engineers over there decided to solve a long time problem of developing Christmas wish list the Google way...create one with Froogle that can be searched, created, and shared with many people.
Jason Shellen explains how to create your own Froogle Wish List:
Want one of your own? Just go to Froogle, search for a few things from thousands of online merchants, and click 'Add to list' for any item you want to add to your Shopping List. You'll need to sign in to your Google account or create one if you haven't already (if you have a Gmail account or Groups 2 login, you already have a Google account). If you want to share items, just click the 'In Wish List' checkbox and whammo, you now have a web page of your holiday wish list to share with friends and family. This year maybe I'll get iPod socks instead of argyle!
Now Jason, what are iPod socks? Funniest thing I have heard today that you can actually buy socks for your iPod. Cool! According to the the product description: Dress your iPod up in any one of six vibrant color socks, Just slide your iPod into the sock to keep it safe and warm. :) Slide it out to dock or change playlists. It's as easy as... putting on a pair of socks. Sounds pretty easy to me. Fun, and definately better than argyle socks. ;)
