More Google Base Screenshots

Caleb Eggensperger sent in some more Google Base screenshots (thanks for that, as I still can’t see this live):

Do these screens finally illustrate what the program is going to be? I guess we need to wait for the final product to see how it interacts with Google, Froogle, Google Local et al to answer this. In the meantime, Google could only repeat to me what they announced to others as well; “We are testing a new way for content owners to submit their content to Google, which will complement existing methods such as web crawl and the Google Sitemaps program.”
A reader of Seweso’s blog by the name of Lone Deranger puts it somewhat more drastic:

“There is much more to this than an ’ebay/craigslist’ killer. This is the first part of Google putting all your information on line that you currently have lying around on your desktop. Before there was no way of doing this other than creating a website which most people are too lazy to do.

Oh, and guess what, once you have your documents uploaded on Googlebase, in a few months they’ll roll out Google Office and you’ll be able to edit them right there!”

Update: Google Base went live today.
