eBay buying AOL?

No primary category set

eBay may be a potential bidder for Time Warner’s AOL, reports the San Jose Mercury. Frankly this reminds me of the time a journalist commented to me that “if we put ‘eBay’ in the headline, we get ten times the readers”: “may be potential bidders” doesn’t sound like anything more than speculation, and now would be a terrible time for eBay to buy AOL, when they need to be focusing on reviving the marketplace business. Still, one thing is certain: with the internet rumour mill in overdrive after last week’s Microsoft offer for Yahoo, this won’t be the last story of this kind we see.

Via Only eBay.

  1. Seems a bit of an extreme solution just to make sure AOL members manage to get eBay ‘My Messages’ in their email inbox without getting blocked. ๐Ÿ˜€
