MSN MONEY -- Feb 28 -- Microsoft, the world's largest software maker, started testing a free U.S. marketplace, similar to Craigslist. Expo categorizes postings by zip code to allow users to filter ads by distance. Online at http://expo.live.com. Microsoft will face competition from eBay and Google Base. Expo is integrated with MSN Messenger to allow buyers and sellers to instantly discuss or negotiate a deal.
Mark Brooks: The home page is too busy. I recommend more simplification.
