And one service to bind them all

Google have a new project that could well replace half of their services, Google Base. It’s a rather vague project designed to pursue their goal of organising the world’s information in the most direct way possible.

Adult material does seem to be a allowed in general. The most eye catching item not allowed: “Posting is not permitted for the promotion of body parts or human remains.” Google, Froogle, Google Base
