Sizeasy. A handy visual tool for comparing all manner of different rectangular-shaped things.

Oh, so that's what it looks like next to a can of soda. I have some correction letters to write.

[ insert sardonic joke about the press using stupid folk units like "enough capacity to store 28 Libraries of Congress" or "a volume equivalent to 121 olympic-size swimming pools" ]

I was all ready to be snarky, but this is actually quite useful. Thanks sksp.

It helped me compare the size of the average gap in the online market in 2006 with the equivalent gap in 2000. Looks like it's much smaller now.

This is really interesting. Added to my list of reference bookmarks. Thanks.

This *is* really interesting. Added to my list of "Things that every instinct in my body tells me I should take the piss out of but in actual fact fill me with a sense of satisfaction and comfort." Thanks.

I was wondering where Gizmodo got their cool size comparisons.

(Of course, I never noticed till today that they referenced sizeasy at the bottom of the post. I usually don't click-in to the comment page.)

Fantastic tool. I expect a white background and Google branding by next quarter.

Was this named by the same guy that named the finglonger?

Daaaaaaaaaamn. This is sweet. Comparing similar things like avalanche transceivers makes choosing between them a lot easier.
