THoughts anyone? I would be thinking how we can capitalize on the things that they might change. Also for you people with ALOT of dough, perhaps the stock market would benifit you at this time. Dont take my word for it though! I dont wanna be responsible for any bankruptcies!

I think Microsoft will do a rubbish job to be quite honest. Id expect to see price rises, but also some better features made available.

I dont see it as a good thing

Microsoft getting their hands on anything this big can't be a good thing.

Personally, I think they have enough on their plates trying to make a stable OS... they don't need to worry about billions of auctions.

Besides... if microsoft bought ebay... we'd end up with the blue screen of auction death, about 1 minute 30 seconds from the end of a high end auction with a bidding war going on... all the bids would be lost and we'd be charged double the fees for our troubles, with no refund...

It wouldnt surprise me if he wanted to buy Ebay. In the late 1980's or early 90's, he wanted to buy Schwans Food Service Company because he really liked the business model and distribution system. I think he must like the power and marketing of EBay and the fact that just about everyone on the planet has heard of it!
Bill EBay Gates...hmmmmmmm
