Amazon Introduces Shopping-by-Text
Amazon has introduced a revolutionary new feature that allows shoppers to text message the site for product information- even while in other stores. According to the AP, the service, called AmazonTextBuyIt, lets customers text Amazon with the UPC or ISBN code of any product, at which point they receive a text in return listing prices for the same or similar items, as well as their prices. Then, they can make a purchase directly by text.
The service works anywhere cell phones work.
