Microsoft should just give up... 10 years from now and they will be the next RIMM - Jerry Schuman

Is Robert in a Microsoft coma - Moe Glitz from iPhone
google base wasn't an ebay killer, it was a way to get spammers to give them data directly without crawling - Kevin Marks
I sit on a school board and a PTA in Brooklyn. Everyone is shifting to Google Docs, lead by parents. - Rob Underwood
Google Base was a way of feeding a product catalogue into Googles index - Ian Waring
In developing countries people would push open office, but a lot of people wanted to learn Microsoft Office because that's what they needed to know to get a job.

When Googlebase was launched, the eBay killer tag was mentioned. - Moe Glitz from iPhone
