Ikan

June 22, 2008

We just ordered the Ikan for $109 including shipping. This is a special price for the first 100 orders from Peapod customers and represents a whopping $300 discount.

As written up in the New York Times, the main function of this device is to scan the barcodes of items as you are about to throw away the packaging. The device connects to the Internet using your wireless network and adds the scanned item to your shopping list at a web grocer (in our case Peapod). This mainly saves you the trouble of keeping a list and then translating that list into a peapod order– steps that are a big enough hassle to to significantly reduce my enthusiasm for peapod when we used it before.

I’ll write more after we have actually used the device.
