Microsoft Fremont: online marketplace announced
After Google launched Google Base this month, it comes as no shock that Microsoft announced it’s testing its own version of Google Base.
The Microsoft online marketplace, code-named Fremont, is a free service which lets people contribute listings similar to Craiglist. It’s a general purpose marketplace whether people are looking for roommates, jobs, or new/used items for sale.
Although you can get a glimpse of Fremont at fremont.live.com, it’s currently only open to Microsoft employees. The first public test will start later this month.
