Not just a base hit, a homerun

Not just a base hit, a homerun: (Pardon me while I interrupt my blogging interruption.) As I blogged earlier, Google Base has an easier way for small companies to upload their inventory list so their merchandise can show up on Google searches more reliably. Amazon has that topped: Don’t just upload a list of your merchandise: send them the merchandise and they’ll handle everything:

“Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) is a new program that makes delivering your Pro Merchant Program and WebStore orders a snap. You send your new and used products to us, and we’ll store them. As orders are placed, we’ll pick, pack and ship them to your customers from our network of fulfillment centers.”

By the way, this recalls a bit of blogging history that involved two bloggers on my favorite list, B.L. Ochman and Steve Baker.
