General discussion &, Do personal shoppers really work?

Dear Buzz Out Loud Gang,
I read about these two companies recently and I was wondering if anyone has ever used these two services? One is called myShape, which will be opening in September and the other is called Zafu, which is in operations now. Both websites are personal shopping portals in which allow women to buy clothing that always fits them. Essentially, you send in your measurements to these websites when log in and setup an account. Afterwards, when you then return into the website, all of the clothing and styles you see under your profile will be those that are particularly tailored for you. It is as if you have personal tailor. It is an interesting business model but somewhat odd as well because you placing your trust in someone else for your clothing.

This however would be a great place for men in that they would not have to guess what to get their wives or girlfriends. All hard stuff is already done for them. Wink

I thought this was quite intriguing and wanted to know if anyone has ever used a personal shopping service?

You have to be diverse dude ;-), Want to get something else

In actuality, I bought her a necklace with a diamond charm for her birthday so simply continually buying her jewelry may not be the best move dude. Besides, women like diversity so I need to come up with something else.

We are going on a cruise to Hawaii soon and she spent a ton of money on me for clothing for that cruise. Trying to buy clothes for her is like buying clothes for the Queen of England.

I just wanted to know if anyone has used this service and was he or she happy with it. I will also check with some of the newsgroups and a few blogs to see if there is any chatter about it.

Thanks dude;-)

Clothes Shopping
by djcoty / August 23, 2006 12:01 AM PDT

I hate shopping for clothes... but when I do, by heck, I'm going into a store where I can see, feel, and try on the clothes I'm about to buy.

And I thought personal shoppers went out and bought things for you based on what you want or what they think will look good on you. These sites, from what you've said, really only seem to do the simple task of looking at the size label for you... kinda lazy I guess...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
