Microsoft launches gbase competitor

Today Microsoft announced a beta of a new service that allows retailers to submit their online catalogueueues to the Live Search index.  Code named Agora (Greek to me).

Greg Sterling of Sterling Marketing Intelligence predicts: “It’s a threat to the shopping comparison engines, because search engines are
used so much more frequently than those engines for product research”

What do you think readers, will services like Google Base and Agora cause risk to the CSEs?
