Google Automat

Much has been written about Google Base, the classified system being launched by Google. But Classified Intelligence Report (not online, subscription PDF newsletter) finds out some new details on the plans, and comes up with Google Automat. In its patent application filed with USPTO, Google says it is a system for "providing on-line user-assisted Web-based advertising".

Automat creates a contextual ad identical in appearance to Google AdWords, which now run down the right side of every Google search-results page. Automat can create a free-standing Web page to serve as the product description page...
