Yahoo Buzz Game

Yahoo Research Labs has started a simulated market game for tech gizmos.
You start with $10,000 to buy 'shares' of competing types or brands of tech toys.
There are a bunch of different categories under the headings of Entertainment, Gadgets and Networks.
Some of the choices to make are just between brands but others are between standards of the technologies.
The prices change based on the demand for the shares but also they are adjusted weekly based on the popularity of the 'brand' in Yahoo searches.

Sort of like betting on American Idols of techie stuff.

I first read about this in the Makeblog.

See for yourself...
