As Google continues its march towards global domination with the launch of Google Checkout, Gristmillers can sleep soundly tonight knowing that the following prohibited items can’t be sold/bought via the new service:
Endangered species: Plants, animals or other organisms (including product derivatives) in danger of extinction
Precious metals: Bulk sales of rare, scarce, or valuable metals
The fact the former has to be listed is depressing. Luckily it will be a four-day weekend for Grist to lift the spirits!
