For the visually-minded, there's a new way to browse TradeMe listings via a pinboard style layout, at Rummage.co.nz.
According to the NBR, Californian entrepreneurs Matt Inouye and Eugene Otto (who previously used eBay's API to create Rumma.ge, a similar concept) worked with TradeMe's API to create the new site.
Rummage, which describes itself as "visual search for TradeMe", pulls in photos from TradeMe gallery listings and is mobile and PC-friendly.
Plus there's a 'surprise me' function, not unlike Google's I'm Feeling Lucky, which throws up random results when clicked.
