Last photos of Marilyn Monroe on auction at eBay

Posted in eBay by Shane McGlaun on May 7th, 2009

mornoepic-sbI’m not the classic movie and old music kind of guy. As classic as I want to go are films from my childhood like Star Wars and Goonies. I never really understood the allure of old Hollywood types like Marilyn Monroe and Frank Sinatra, but to some these types of old school stars are legends.

Everyone knows about the tragic and untimely death of Monroe. Some of the last known photos of the star are up for auction on eBay and were taken only five days before her death. The photos come from the collection of musician Buddy Greco.

Dark Knight Xbox 360 on eBay, will cost you
This rare Dark Knight Xbox 360 was spotted at the Microsoft game exhibition in Taiwan. Every self respecting nerd and his comic book dealer want to get their hands on it, but that just isn’t going to happen. Turns out there were only 110 made and it looks like the only way to get one is on ebay, where they seem to be going for $800 and up. It only comes with a 20GB hard drive and the same accessories as the $300 bundle.You better go find a money tree and shake it real hard. There’s always this thing.

Back To The Future hoverboard on ebay: $30k

Posted in eBay by Conner Flynn on July 25th, 2008

Back To The Future hoverboard on ebay: $30kThey weren’t kidding about inflation in the Back To The Future movies. A genuine wooden Mattel hoverboard used by Marty McFly himself in Back to the Future II and III is up for auction on ebay. The entry price is $30,000.

But that’s not really news. The movie taught us that everything is more expensive in the future. It’s like $3000 for a Pepsi. Some collector with more money then sense will probably think it’s worth getting their hands on the hoverboard, after all it’s considered the “best example of all wood hoverboards to have survived the rigors of filming,”.

Also has 10 white led headlights, stealth power switch and DVD eject buttons. It’s currently bid up to $227.50, which is a bargain for any Batman-crazy fan.

Threatened eBay boycott to start today

Posted in eBay by Conner Flynn on February 18th, 2008

eBayPeople all over the internet, all over the world, are seriously pissed off at Feebay at the moment. So angry, that there is boycott starting on Monday to protest changes the auction site has made to the way feedback is handled, among other things, like raised fees, sellers standards, and the way search works. There are a ton of people who make their living on eBay and are hard working people. They fear the changes, which seem “unwarranted”, would make it harder for them to depend on eBay for income.

The straw that is breaking the auction giant’s back is that the new feedback system would allow buyers to leave negatives for sellers, while sellers can not do the same should a buyer deserve it. This threatens the already fragile reputation system. People just can not fathom such a Forest Gump type move. Many admit that the feedback system is already flawed, but many sellers think this change is going in the absolute wrong direction.

Big tech names sued over voicemail patents

Posted in AT&T,Cablevision,Comcast,eBay,Legal,News by Nino Marchetti on December 3rd, 2007

Big tech companies sued over voicemail patentsWhat do AT&T, Apple, Comcast, Cablevision and eBay all have in common? They are all being sued today by Klausner Technologies over visual voicemail patents the company says it owns and which it feels these well known, other companies have not yet requested a patent license for.

The suits were filed by the company which “was founded by Judah Klausner, the inventor of the PDA and electronic organizer.” Klausner Technologies says Cablevision’s Optimum Voicemail, Comcast’s Digital Voice Voicemail, eBay’s Skype Voicemail and AT&T/Apple’s iPhone Visual Voicemail services all violate patents it holds which allow “users to selectively retrieve and listen to voice messages via message inbox displays.”

iPhones Showing Up On Ebay

Posted in eBay,iPhone by Reuben Drake on June 29th, 2007

iPhones showing up on EbayiPhones are already showing up on eBay for auction, listed as high as $1100 in some instances, and one we saw already had a dozen bids up to $760 in the first 30 minutes. Another had only been posted for a few minutes with a $0.99 starting bid.

If your bold enough to trust these folks that somehow have the iPhones “in hand and ready to ship” you can try your luck, but it doesn’t look like eBay is trusting them. Listings keep cropping up but we don’t often see the same one twice since eBay is pulling them almost as fast as they are showing up.

Ebay Back on Google AdWords, Still Sore

Posted in eBay,Google,News by Chris Weber on June 24th, 2007

Ebay has resumed advertising with Google after disputeIt appears that Ebay is back to advertising with Google Adwords after a slight spat which triggered an “experiment” by Ebay to pull all of their advertising from Google over a week ago.

The issue arose from news that Google was planning a conference at the same time and city of an Ebay conference where Google was promoting Google Checkout, a rival platform to Paypal used by Ebay. As a result Ebay, who is one of the largest advertisers on the Google Adwords pay-per-click, pulled all of their ads from the system in what was called an “experiment” to test their dependency on the search engine giant.

Ebay is now again advertising with Google having completed their experimental run, and have concluded that even though they will continue to use Google Adwords, it will be at a lesser volume than previous. Hani …

eBay Bans Virtual Merchandise

Posted in eBay,Games,News by Chris Weber on January 31st, 2007

ebay bans sales of virtual in-games itemsOne of the oldest controversies in online gaming is the re-selling of in game merchandise. Ever since the days of EverQuest to the present World of Warcraft phenomena, selling your hard earned, in-game items has been a somewhat dubious profession. EBay is putting the brakes on such practices however.

The practice known as RMT (Real Money Transfer), is usually discouraged by game publishers because it involves selling intellectual property which may in fact belong to game publishers and not the players themselves.

A spokesman for eBay, Hani Durzy, recently told SlashDot that eBay has made the decision for “the overall health of the marketplace.” Mr. Durzy also said that the selling of virtual items involved “legal complexities.” Mr. Durzy also cited eBay’s existing digital goods policy, which states that a seller …
