Agent Craig scours eBay, Craigslist

updated 12:25 pm EDT, Mon May 26, 2008

Agent Craig search app

Black Pixel Luminance has released the first version of Agent Craig, a search utility for Mac OS X. The software hunts for keywords on eBay auctions and Craigslist entries, making it easier to find apartment listings, job offers and items for sale; it also operates continuously in the background, displaying Growl pop-ups whenever new posts match search criteria. These pop-ups can also be given separate sound cues.

Users can specify which sections of a website are searched, and particular listings can be blacklisted so that they do not reappear in future scans. The program additionally lets user annotate listings, and extend searches to other websites via an open plug-in architecture. Agent Craig costs $30, and requires Mac OS X Leopard.

    Don't get it

    I don't get the use the the peace symbol/nero's cross. Trying to appeal to a specific left-wing market or is this an esoteric satanist plot?

    Reference to Craigslist

    The symbol is almost certainly a reference to Craigslist, which uses it as a logo. (I don't see it anywhere on the actual Craigslist site, but it pops up in the address bar in Safari when I go to the site).
