Reaction to Google Base

By Exclusive Concepts Blog Team

Google has now launched Google Base which is like the Craigslist classifieds only with better search functionality and with ads.

Blogger Bill Burnham sees a lot of potential in the Google Base technology:

because Google Base will in fact be a giant XML database it will be far more powerful than a structured directory. Not only will Google Base users be able to browse similar listings in a structured fashion, but they will also ultimately be able to do highly detailed, highly accurate queries.

But A VC thinks most of Google’s services, including Google Base, are “lame???:

in many of their recent initiatives, Google has introduced a delay between submit and display. And that’s just lame in this day and age of instant recall.

Try it yourself at the Google Base site.
