I have been asked to review spacetime – a new web application which allows 3D search of eBay, Google, amazon, YouTube Yahoo! and Flickr all from one visual browser.
the application allows you to scroll through entire screens, or just the item images. Here is an example:
Now although I think that we have a long way to go interms of nagivating through search pages, I think that the appliations like this, whist looking pretty, slow down the whole process. The site by it very nature is an intermediary, coming between you and information you want to find. It is also rather processor intensive, requiring a high spec PC.
That said it is nice to be able to search all these plaforms from one place.
