EAN and UPC locator

One of the things you get to do a lot  with Amazaon Mechanical Turk, when you have been working for/with them for a while, is find EAN (European Article Number) numbers and UPC (Universal Product Code) numbers. Only they know why. But you have it as hit, you choose to do so, you get paid. Everybody wins.

 For some hits you will actually go and find it the information yourself, for others, you will have to revise other people's work. In any case, I found two websites that makes these kind of hits a lot faster and easier to do.

 The first is  http://www.ean-search.org/ Pretty self-explanatory, if you ask me. You just type in the EAN number, and the product information will come up.  

The other one is http://www.upcdatabase.com/ Again, it does exactly what it says on the tin.

 So there you go, if you are ever in need of finding EAN or UPC numbers, these two websites should make your life just a little bit easier.
