Online shopping at work can be dangerous—if you're in a cube farm, you never know who's peeking over your shoulder to make sure you're using the company's time "efficiently".
IMShopping, the first human-assisted shopping service on the web, minimizes the risk (and is a heck of a lot more personal than Google) with a community of expert shoppers on hand to tailor search results to your specific needs. You can ask questions directly on the site, or receive an answer via Twitter. I tweeted a request for a cute, non-black laptop case with a sturdy shoulder strap and had five options within an hour. I don't know if I would have found NicoleJane.com's chic black-and-white leaf bag for only $35 if I'd spent an entire lunch hour looking.
