Thanks to a misplaced link that was briefly available on Tuesday, Google has accidently spilled the beans on a classified ad service it's in the process of developing. The new service is named Google Base (at least for now), and as CNN speculates, it may antagonize some of Google's most prominent customers, including eBay.
Speculation over what Google might or might not do next is practically an investor and Internet national pastime, but the fact that Google's service appears well beyond the planning or speculative stages has raised eyebrows over how this new initiative will fit into Google's portfolio and focus. That said, classified ads on Google sound like an intriguing option—not to mention the ultimate way to find any number of nearly-impossible-to-locate items, collectables, or rarities.
