Certain tests help you figure things out about yourself, like high school questionnaires that put you on the right career path, and the colorblindness one that explained why your guidance counselor's advice to get into house-painting sucked so very hard. Get tested to figure out what electronics you have the scholastic aptitude for, at iScoper

Thoughtfully designed to eliminate the hassle and confusion of electronics shopping, Scoper's a declaredly unbiased site built by two web entrepreneurs on opposite sides of the globe via Skype, that uses simple questionnaires to expertly match you up with the products that best take care of your needs, and also things that aren't named the Slap Chop. Each of ten different gadget types (from GPS systems to cell phones) gets its own set of questions in checkbox form, ranging from basic use (how far from the TV will people sit; how many people will use a printer), to the relative importance of certain specs, like how often you'll be taking "high movement photos" or if you need a video-capable MP3 player, to if you've got a brand preference, but beware if you choose Ed Hardy, as your computer has the good taste to slap you. Scoper then runs your responses through its proprietary matching technology, built by "tech experts" who review/rate products and fine tune the algorithm used to deduce the elements most important to you; you'll end up with photos of 3-5 recommended items along with their specs and lowest-price purchase links, at which point you'll notice Tony with the van and the cheap speakers still doesn't have his website up yet

Conveniently, Scoper's also got a crazy-comprehensive glossary breaking down everything from the difference between digital and optical camera zooms to jargon-y acronyms, so you'll be prepared for an intelligent conversation about TFT monitors, despite being unable to see that the one you bought is pink.
