Our latest Future Of Retail Report looks at the trend of Auto-Curated Shopping. One manifestation of this theme is Pickie – an iPad magazine that uses social media mentions from users’ friends to create a personalized shopping catalog.

The tablet application includes details about price, availability and what their friends have said.
