All your base are belong to Google
TechCrunch: Google Base Launched. Yuck.
This is not a very interesting application in its current form. It’s like a 1985 dBASE file with less functionality. It’s ugly. It’s centralized content with less functionality than ebay or craigslist. The content is not integrated directly into Google search results, but “relevance” can bump it up into main and local search (and froogle).
