This is a little off topic for this blog, but I love cool tech stuff, and this is really cool. I know a lot of you out there are geeks a heart, and we all love to get the best price when we shop.
If this describes you too, you gotta check this out.
Some graduates from my Alma Mater (Texas A&M University) are up for a neat award, and I was hoping some of you would take a minute to vote.
This guy (Rylan Barnes) started up a company that makes software for your mobile phone (think iPhone, Android/G1 etc). Their first application is out, and it is a killer app! Totally practical and useful (and really cool).
The app is called ShopSavvy and it uses the camera in your phone to scan the barcode of any product and finds the best prices online and at nearby, local stores!
Check out the company here: biggu.com

They are up against some big Silicon Valley competition (like Google) so please spread the word. Blog it, twitter it, tell your facebook friends! Vote every day! They'll take all the help they can get.
