Bloggers "discover" Google payment service
The blogosphere is afroth over the discovery that Google has registered the domain name googlecheckout.net, with many predicting that Google will soon launch a rival to eBay's PayPal. One problem with all the rumors: All the bloggers failed to ask whether Google had, in fact, already launched such a service. Back in February, Google quietly added online-payment features to the Google Account through which users log into the site and advertisers make payments. Ironically, some of the same blogs which reported on Google Account back in February breathlessly reported on the "discovery" of a supposedly new Google Checkout service.
