Like.com Finds What You Like

Like.com is a brand-new search engine that allows you to search by looking at shoes and accessories featured in celebrity photos. Sounds lame, and it is, until you realize that you can draw a box around the exact part of the featured accessory you like… and like.com searches for other products that have that same feature.

Like the toes of Tyra’s boots but not the heel? Draw a box around the toes and see what like.com comes up with. For us, it found lots of similar (and cheaper) boots on stores like amazon.com.

Cool idea. The site is still in “alpha”, but we think this has a lot of promise. The celebs available for imitation are pretty weak…who tries to look like Britney Spears?…but we’re looking forward to the future. For more info, The Wall Street Journal has a detailed review of Like.com here.— MEGHANN MARCO

    I’ll ONLY consider it ready for Prime Time when it has Borat’s neon green nut harness.

    This is a really exciting development. When they add more pictures, and refine their “Likeness” tech, I could see myself using this a LOT!

    When you can do this with any picture on the web, I’ll be interested. Celebs don’t do it for me.

    “…who tries to look like Britney Spears?…”

    90% of the slutty trashy tweens and teenie boppers that live in my neighborhood.

    It doesn’t work terribly well right now… cool idea if, like Grady said, you could use any picture.
