Fair enough :)

I think GBuy will just be an upgrade of Google Purchases which also links into AdWords

While purchases.google.com is redirecting, this link is valid: purchases.google.com/termsOfSe ...

Is it part of an existing service? It's dated January of this year.

There are many links out there that are live:

purchases.google.com/support/
google.com/support/purchases/b ...
purchases.google.com/files/buy ...
purchases.google.com/files/sel ...
purchases.google.com/files/pri ...

There are also some links that are published on the Support pages but are not live yet.

purchases.google.com/selectRem ...

David: Why do you think so? I see logical Purchases – that´s actually the only one domain where you can find some content.

Niraj Sanghvi > that link is online since many days, I have already seen that when they launched Picasaweb, where you can buy for more space ;-)

not, it's not google but "Google Payment Corp." who is concerned.

Theses screenshoots are EXACTLY the same that I sayed few days ago, about Picasaweb
> picasaweb.google.com/lh/upgrad ...
when I click on "buy" (Some of you don't see that button) I got that :
purchases.google.com/buy?o=sho ...

So, nothing new in fact...
google.com/support/purchases/b ...

<<What can I buy with my Google Account?

With your Google Account, you can make convenient, secure purchases from:

   * Google Base
   * Google Earth
   * The Google Store
   * Google Video
   * Picasa Web Albums >>

what about Froogle?! :/

(google.com/support/purchases/b ...)

/pd > you can :) I didn't remove the session id in this aim :-)

In the code I see an iframe with :

This just came though my Google Reader Google blog feed – the link to the blog entry is below, and doesn't resolve. Looks like someone got trigger happy :)
