I used it to help locate and decide on a modestly priced sleeping bag and 1-person tent ($200 total), having tested them I'm a bit iffy on the sleeping bag but mostly because it's a mummy bag and I've never had one of those before; it does actually fit me (I'm pretty tall). Anyway the experience of having it find and recommend 5 different products for me to look at was a lot more pleasant than using google to find an SEO'd site that probably won't give me what I really want.
I've also had it recommend me some backpacks as I think next time I do long international travel I want to try a backpack instead of messenger back to haul around my laptop etc. Problem is it gave me like 3 good options, now it's just a me-issue in paralysis for which one to try.
Anyway, it just seems like a huge money opportunity for OpenAI that is currently being neglected, and it amazes me that in our ad-infested world that can be the case.
