Sizing Up Your Online Purchases

Sizeasy.jpg This made the rounds a few months back, but I thought I’d remind people it’s there as a useful tool for those who prefer to do their last minute holiday shopping online but want a more tangible image of the item they’re ordering. Sizeasy lets the user enter the dimensions of an object and then visually compare its size with up to four other objects, including some ready made graphics like a 19” TV, a wine bottle, a deck of playing cards, a door, or a double mattress.
For instance, say you would prefer a hardcover edition of the 2007 World Almanac (10.2 x 7.3 x 2.4 inches) over the paperback (7.9 x 5.5 x 1.5 inches) but aren’t sure if its vastness of facts in larger fonts is just too much for your bookcase. Just enter the dimensions of all three and then compare them from the front, side, top, or at an angle (“3D”):
