On-line support for consumer electronics


RetrevoHow many times did you misplace that manual for your latest gear. I know, I know…you don’t read the manuals. What if you needed to? Sure, you can Google away, but what if there was a targeted web-service to help you out? What if that service provided reviews? How about finding a Wiki for your specific device?

Turns out there are two great resources that help with all of this and Mari Silbey, the latest and greatest writer over at Zatz Not Funny, highlights them both today. Retrevo provides product manuals, reviews and forums for gadgets and works really well. In the pic shown, I looked up the Canon ELURA 100 camcorder we mentioned yesterday and the results were impressive. Su.pport.us is another related service that Mari highlights, providing a Wiki that anyone can contribute to by adding hints, tips and tricks for specific devices. Sweet!
