What is Amazon Mechanical Turk?

I think I would like to use this service to test features on my website, but I am confused on some of the details. Is this a developer auction type of thing like rent a coder? but only for product testing?

I read some of the intro, and one of the use cases was to search for information and update the data. We sell products on our site, 3000 of them, and it is very time consuming performing everything else. Would this system lend itself to paying people to search or create item descriptions and/or competitor price research?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
