Re: The Power of Watson
@brian.dean- You are right that geography matters. That is one of the next steps for the app. At the same time, for some products supply is more than local, especially with online buying. So, for instance, let's say no one in my region is interested in Legos but boy, are they hot in another region. If I want Legos, even if I'm the only one in my region, I might still have troubles as supply is bought up online and shifted elsewhere by stores. But Watson might be able to help me figure that out so I ship in-store.

But it is interesting how youc an get a bit too local with this if you aren't careful as well.
