The Whoa Show : You are the show !

The Whoa Show : You are the show !The Whoa Show makes activity-driven video shows that only star the audience. The Orange County, California-based media company will develop shows for various platforms, beginning with the web and expanding to mobile and beyond.

First in Action, a never-ending Internet show, is scheduled to go live on New Year’s Day. Set up as a video chain that only stars its audience, First in Action lets the public “race” against each other to make it on the show.

The appeal
If you make it on First in Action, you get to direct the next person in the chain to do whatever you want.

The catch
To make it, you have to be the first to do whatever the last person in the chain wants. “This creates a massive race where you’re pitted against your family, your friends, your neighbors, everyone,” says David Hissami, founder & CEO of The Whoa Show, the company behind First in Action.

TypoTrawler : Find more Bargains on eBay

You’re probably already aware of services such as Fat Fingers which find misspelled items on eBay. Misspelled items tend to have fewer people viewing them because if the listing is ‘New Latop’ and someone searches for ‘laptop’, the item wont be shown, thus less bids are made. Hence, by finding these items, you can grab a bargain.

TypoTrawler is different to Fat Fingers because instead of users having to enter the search term by hand (e.g. ‘laptop’), we continually search eBay for hundreds of thousands of different misspelled items. We them group them into the categories on our website so that users can easily view them. TypoTrawler uses Web 2.0 ideas to improve the experience for the user. Items are displayed using AJAX and user feedback dictates which typos are searched for in the future and which to blacklist.

But this has been done before…
Yes it has. But TypoTrawler does it better. Services like our sister site TypoTracker are great if you’re looking for a specific item, but if you’re just looking for a great deal on whatever you can find, it’s not very effective. After about 15 minutes you’re out of ideas for things to search for… this is where TypoTrawler steps in. Our robot minions relentlessly trawl through eBay day and night picking out misspelled items. We then display them in a handy list so you can watch the bargains literally flow down the screen!
