Microsoft Does Google Base
Friday, 02 December 2005
Well, it may not have enjoyed the smoothest of launches, but it appears that Google Base is already being afforded the sincerest type of flattery by Microsoft - that of imitation.
Microsoft are strongly rumoured to be launching their own "classified ads" type product, codenamed Fremont according to www.redherring.com. The service will initially be launched in a limited Beta format and, like the Google product, is targeted at private and business advertisers without their own web presence.
Anyone care to take bets on when we see a similar service from Yahoo! ?
