Google guns for Ebay

Google has been showing off screen shots of Google Base, its new service designed to compete with Ebay and Craigslist.

Basically it will be a web-based database that punters will be allowed to contribute anything they like. This could be a listing for an auction or anything. Google Base will be linked to the search engine's shopping site Froogle, and Google Local. This will give a combination Google mapping and localised search results.

It will also be free, with Google making its cash flogging appropriate advertising during various stages of the process.

Google is not saying much about the screenshots, other than to confirm they are true. It could be that EBay is a little concerned about this.
