Jocelyn K. Glei of 99% asks: have you ever fallen into a black hole of comparison shopping?

"You're looking for a new digital camera, for instance. You head over to and read some reviews of various cameras, watch the video demos, identify the model you want. Then perhaps you employ Google's shopping search to price out the options and find the best deal. All of the sudden, it's four hours later. You've found the perfect camera, but your purchasing triumph is tainted by a creeping feeling of, well, disgust.

Jocelyn really wants to know: could that time not have been used better?
