I’ve been playing with oScope, a fascinating search application, that displays results visually from eBay, Flickr, Amazon, and YouTube sources. As a user you have several options for how the results are displayed (i.e. display as list, pile, graph, etc.). I found the graph option very useful when searching eBay results as it allowed me to view the results across two axes – the first from low to high price, and the other relating to the time until the auction closes.
Yet another example of how rapidly the web is becoming visual/image-based!
