Shopping By Proxy

It could be just the thing for those of you who can't stop shopping, CBS News Correspondent Sam Litzinger reports: A new service lets you comparison shop anytime, anywhere.

It's called a new, free service you can access via a cell phone or a regular phone or even a palm pilot. You find something you want to buy, feed in the information and, CEO Michael Bates says, his system comparison shops for you.

"What this does for the consumer is it enables the consumer to get information wherever they are on whatever item they're interested in," Bates told CBS Radio News.

Then, buy it at your local store if you need it now, or order it for delivery from the place with the best price. Bates says it's the latest example of how information is converging.
