This is a bit of a stretch topic, but I find myself often browsing gear websites (like, Gear Patrol and Uncrate) for birthday and gift ideas. I find it cumbersome to click through each and every article looking for items that are either within my price range or within my price range && category of item that I'm looking for.
I know that I can go to Amazon and set specific filters for items that I am looking for, but I enjoy receiving suggestions from websites that are known to give quality product recommendations.
From a data mining / web scraping standpoint, does anyone know of any resources of tutorials online that provide guidance for similar products?
Is R or Python better suited for web scraping applications?
Any insight into my idea would be greatly appreciated :)
