The Frizzly.com web service gathers information about its
users, combines these with weather reports, and predicts
users' bad hair days.

their hair. They might fill out a simple survey describing

Users can also report their bad hair days to Frizzly. Thanks
to sophisticated machine learning technology, Frizzly thus
gets better at predicting.
Frizzly monitors weather predictions.
When Frizzly notices weather predictions that are likely to
cause bad hair days, it alerts the user. The user might
then act upon this description by wearing a
hat/headscarf/Marie Antoinette wig that day.
The Frizzly business strategy: hope to get acquired by an
online hat retailer that wants an excuse to send occasional
notices to customers.
