Get.com Is an Ask-and-Answer Site for Finding the Right ProductsGet.com is a Q&A site for getting product recommendations from other people. You can ask things like “what’s the best laptop under $1,000” or “what has your experience been with the Honda Civic?”

(By the way, although you’re prompted to sign up and connect with Twitter and Facebook, it’s not necessary.)

Another plus for the service: Get.com is pretty easy to remember.
