I can’t stress how important it is for them to sit back and listen to the last Coffee with Rex Dixon show. More power to them. No, that wasn’t a remark about this company.

The site Riya is right now geared towards woman’s fashion, and Liz over at GigaOm chimed in with this comment quote ” Riya CEO Munjal Shah showed me a bunch of searches that worked really well, like strappy red high heels and a busily patterned bag, but when we got off-script with a shiny necklace, the results were much more unimpressive. ” unquote. In other words – 250 servers x 20 Gigs of RAM and all we can search is Shoes and Handbags at the moment.

Technically Speaking, I’m not in the market for either one.
