FatLens expands into new categories

FatLens, which started in ticket search, beta-launched shopping search functionality in a half-dozen categories:

- Jewelry and Watches
- Accessories
- Luggage
- Clothing
- Shoes
- Electronics

Includes some tough categories that have been long-neglected by comparison shopping, which is good. (However, I'm not sure if basic shopping search will have enough to offer in the featuretastic world of consumer electronics.)

The site is very clean, albeit with a small group of initial merchants, interested to see how much they can scale...

New Look for FatLens

FatLens, the ticket search engine, got a fresh new look last weekend.

I talked to Siva Kumar, Co-Founder and President of FatLens, about a number of things, including the new interface. Found a couple of related issues on seating sections: no grouping of sections on the attribute-based search, and no sorting by sections on the results pages. Siva told me they plan to take care of both issues next week. Sounds good. (There is no way to overstate the importance of interfaces for aggregators.) I'll post about other aspects of FatLens soon.
