So the other day I finally lost it with fake reviews. I was shopping for a new TV since I’m watching so much Netflix during covid. I go to Amazon and realize that almost everything I’m looking at is either an ad or a fake review. I start looking elsewhere for some better info when a friend told me about this awesome plugin.

It’s called Hansel.

It’s one of those rare things that you download and never look back. It makes Amazon ten times better by giving you alerts when you view a product that has been researched by a main stream expert like Wirecutter. All you do is add it to Chrome, shop on Amazon, and see expert product advice during your normal online shopping routine. It’s that simple!

So what happened when I used Hansel to buy my new TV? Well, I quickly narrowed it down to a few options that passed the test from leading experts like Wirecutter, Tom’s Guide, and CNET. It gave me the confidence to stop going back and forth and just pull the trigger on a new TV.

Even though I’m not a big app person, I swear by Hansel now. I had long been sick and tired of reading fake reviews from someone half way around the world. Now I skip most of the research and just buy pre-vetted products!

You tell me, who doesn’t want free expert advice baked into their Amazon?

Do yourself a favor and check out Hansel below. I guarantee it will save you tens if not hundreds of hours of work!

Reality Internet

Pics or it didn’t happen! That phrase became popular years ago, but it still makes me laugh. In some ways, it was the first time we all acknowledged that we can’t trust everything people say on the Internet. Now we are in the era of Fake News and Fake Reviews, reaching a new level of questioning what is real online. 

It sunk in for me when my wife and I were expecting our first child and started shopping online for the important items he needed. With all the bloggers, reviews, and comparison sites, our heads were spinning trying to figure out what info to trust and which bassinet, stroller, car seat, etc. to buy. We did our best with online research and outreach to friends with kids.

To no one’s surprise, we loved the items our friends recommended and had mixed results with the items we researched online. And that’s when it hit me – why can’t you just shop the items your friends bought online? They are the ones who can shoot you straight on products and guess what – they have bought tons of great stuff.

So we decided to create Hansel and give people an easier way to buy products they love online. It’s a simple add-on for Chrome that lets you see items your friends bought. Just people you really know, stuff they really bought, and full privacy controls. And it works with existing sites so you don’t have to learn how to use a new app or do any extra work.

The Internet is an amazing resource, but it sure has gotten harder to figure out which info on there will get you what you want. Let’s take a step back and remember that the people we know in real life are the ones who know us best – not Facebook or Google. Get a few people you trust to try Hansel with you, and you’ll be amazed at what you can discover!
