Scot Wingo points to a new Microsoft Live product code-named “Fremont” that will likely compete with Google Base and Craigslist.
This product represents a unique offering by Microsoft to address the person-to-person marketplace. The product, code-named â€œFremont,â€? is a dynamic new listing service that enables people to easily buy, sell, or swap among friends, co-workers, or the public. Fremont enhances your ability to:
* Connect with those you trust â€“ your messenger buddies and your coworkers,
* Locate items in your neighborhood or across the country through integration with MapPoint and Windows Liveâ„¢ Local (formerly Virtual Earth),
*List easily, instantly, and for free.
