Shopping site lets you ask nicely

So much out there to buy – hard time keeping track of it all? Check out Shopping Pink, which some of you guys will be disappointed to find out is quite literal – it’s a shopping list, and it’s – get this – pink. Cute fonts, lacy edges, glittery backgrounds. It lets you make shopping lists and cross stuff off as you go. In pink. It pretty much does what the name suggests, and, as several semi-satisfied customers have commented, nothing more. You were expecting . . . what?

Still not sure what to pester the love of your life for? “Handbag inspiration” is as close as Mirror, Mirror Handbag. “It’s just like downloading a handbag encyclopedia and shopping guide,” including a pronunciation guide spoken by “native speakers,” to your Apple mobile device, the copy says. It’s a guide, not a shopping tool, so it only has approximate price ranges. But, then, why would you want to worry your pretty little head about that?

Speaking of wheedling, why not follow Pulse on Twitter, and give our Facebook page a thumbs up? Pleeeeeease?
