Submission + - Shazam For Wine? (ibtimes.com) 2

coolnumbr12 writes: There are at least 38,000 wineries in the world and more than 160,000 new wines every year. Drync, a Boston-based mobile app company wants to solve this problem using smartphone technology. Drync announced Wednesday that it raised $900,000 to expand its wine discovery app that it hopes will be the “Shazam for Wine.” Simply by taking a picture of a wine label, Drync can identify and describe nearly any bottle of wine. Users can also purchase the wine right through the app and have it shipped directly to their door.

    Me too. By reading the label and Googling it.

      I do it by reading the label and tasting it. I won't ship it directly to your door though

I don't want to be young again, I just don't want to get any older.
