I'm Bryan, an IT guy from Cape Town. I was browsing around a market over the weekend and saw a beautiful gift for my wife at one of the first traders I passed. I thought to myself, I'd go and look around then come back and buy this. Well, it hit me about 3 hours later - I had indeed forgotten to go back.
No problem! I'll just go search for the trader's details and order online... Ummm No! I couldn't remember their name. So I'll either have to wait for the next market - or track them down somehow!
How can I solve this using technology? Easy!
