Use high tech to find low prices

Now you can take an expert with you on every shopping trip: your cell phone.
Scanbuy Shopper software, a free download from www.scan, gathers price comparisons, reviews and product information from the Web.

Whether you're pricing a jug of detergent or an LCD television, Scanbuy Shopper consults, Shopping .com and, among others, before displaying info on your phone's screen.
All you do is use the phone's touchpad to enter the product's eight-digit bar code found on the desired item's box.
It works only with Java-enabled services from providers T-Mobile, Cingular and Sprint. (Depending on the plan, each call will cost about 25 cents. Consult Scanbuy's Web site for a list of compatible phones.)
