Classifieds come to Google.


blockrocker small Classifieds come to Google.

Block Rocker. Google maps meets classified adverts, with RSS feeds tagged to your local area. It’s a bit kludgy at the moment, but you can see the potential of this kind of geo-targeted stuff can’t you? Of course it needs heaps more data, and surely it’s only a matter of time before one of the big boys (Yahoo!, eBay, Craig’s List, the big G. themselves?) launches this type of app or tech? Still, very cool indeed. Nice one.

 Zoom in to see what’s for sale in your neighborhood or on your campus: * Cheaper: Finding items close to home means that you don’t pay for shipping. * Faster: Shipping takes time. Walking down the street or going for a drive to buy something takes much less. * Less Hassle: Shipping is a pain – packaging, labelling (if you’re selling), and getting through customs (buyers) is no fun at all. * See it in Person: Browsing classifieds in your neighborhood or city means you can meet the seller and take a look at the item in person before you buy it.
