Google Purchases Ready To Launch?

"Tom: Any word on how the survivors in the town are doing, Mitch?
Mitch: W-we're not sure what exactly is going on inside the town of Beaverton, uh Tom, but we're reporting that there's looting, raping, and yes, even acts of cannibalism.
Tom: My God, you've, you've actually seen people looting, raping and eating each other?
Mitch: No, no, we haven't actually seen it Tom, we're just reporting it."

Dirson reports that Google is making some tests on Google Purchases (, the site that is supposed to launch soon and that will allow you to buy things with your Google Account id. If you go to the site, you'll get a prompt for your username and password and you'll be redirected to Google Accounts.

  1. I think this will be a major move to take e-commerce to the next level. Paypal (with eBay) know what we buy on ebay but very little of our surfing and searching habits. Google on the other hand is different. This will make them connect surfing and searching to actual buy and that is marketing manager's dream. Wonder what they can do with that data? They could take on the entire marketing and advertising industry. Just as advertising has changed for ever with Google, marketing and market research would change if GPurchase becomes as popular as I expect.
