ようするにオンライン・ガレージセール これはアリだSkype May Be The Biggest Winner From The Web 2.0 Era - ReadWriteWeb
Skype does not get the respect it deserves, because eBay not only publicly admitted to overpaying for it but is making a mess of its core business. Another reason may be that Skype flies in the face of conventional Valley wisdom that says it has to be all about social media. Or maybe the fact that Skype came from Europe, and we all know that Europeans are just lunch-eating dilettantes. Whatever the reason, a company that has $500 million in revenue, is profitable and growing, and has a shot at becoming the largest player in what is now a $2 trillion (yes, "t" for trillion) market, should get more respect.

Post a disclaimer if you are part of a publicly-traded company.
[IBM] avoids blogs and Twitter for investor issues, because it fears violating SEC disclosure rules or inviting public criticism
The growing Twitter audience also attracted the attention of eBay's lawyers, who last month required Mr. Brewer-Hay to include regulatory disclaimers with certain posts. Some followers think the tougher oversight is squelching Mr. Brewer-Hay's spontaneous, informal style. His experience shows the tension that can arise as more companies tap social media to reach investors, customers and others. Eighty-one Fortune 500 companies sponsor public blogs, including Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Chevron Corp. and General Motors Corp., according to the Society for New Communications Research. Of those blogs, 23 link to corporate Twitter accounts.

A Review of the Pirated Copy of Windows 7 I Bought On eBay - http://bit.ly/4FKpXb [from http://twitter.com/hadhad/statuses/4680624496]
Terrible. Possibly related to the previously mentioned hardware difficulties, I found stability to be a real issue with Windows 7. Crashes were frequent, including Blue Screens of Death. Error messages were cryptic and meaningless to me – see below.
LMAO!!! Un unboxing de "Windows7" muy divertido :-)
"Very difficult. The install for Windows 7 comes on four floppy disks, and as my laptop doesn’t have a floppy drive, I was worried I’d have to travel 10 years into the past to find a computer that did. Fortunately, my local Best Buy was offering a USB floppy drive for $80, which, not withstanding certain recent software purchases, struck me as the greatest ripoff the world has ever seen. I’d advise anyone wanting to install Windows 7 on their own machine should make sure their hardware can support it."Do It Yourself: How To Set Up An Auction Using Craigslist and Google Docs
Old article. This is a good way of taking the advantage of Ebay [auctions], combining it with the cost of CraigList [free], and all thanks to Google.

I confess, I'd never even thought of declining entertainment factor as a reason for eBay's slow decline (and possible upcoming demise), but it makes a crapload of sense: while I went there occasionally for deals, most people I know eagerly shared hi-larious links for fun. Pays to know what business you're really in. (via @volckmann)
