It’s baaaaaaaaaccckkkkkk!

Thanks to readers for letting me know that eBay’s BayEstimator utility is back online!  This is a great move by eBay to continue to give sellers the transparency they need to be successful on eBay.

I also noticed a new utility called eBaySaurus (no it’s not a dinosaur, but more of a thesaurus).  This flash-based utility gives you a neat little graph (I believe it’s what we would call a cluster graph in geekier circles).

Digg has had this kind of thing for a while called Swarm, and there are web search engines like Clusty with the same concept.

Here’s an example of star wars where I drilled in and learned that star wars posters is one of the top searched items in the universe of star wars items.
