Google Base Gets Document Uploading

    August 9, 2006

Google Base now lets you attach documents to your items.

You can attach TXT, DOC (Microsoft Word), PDF (Adobe Acrobat), PPT (PowerPoint), XLS (Excel), RTF, ASCII, Unicode, XML and WPD (WordPerfect) files, up to 15 per item for a total of 20 megabytes. In addition, they shipped some usability fixes (finally someone gets that a “Browse” buttom to upload a file is just stupid), a virus checker, Safari support and an upload queue. Hopefully they keep shipping updates to Base, and maybe it’ll be enough to take the service to the next level.
