The Times takes a look at online auctions and alternatives to eBay.
Forbes considers what JD will need to do to restore eBay to its past glories. (IMHO: stop looking back to 1998 and start looking forward to 2018 would be the place to start.)
Gary E. Sattler writes yet another sneery piece about eBay. Considering he’s previously said he neither buys nor sells on the site, I don’t know why he’s so bothered.
Predictably, though, most of the eBay coverage everywhere this week has been about The Strike. Here are just a few of dozens of pieces I’ve read:
Michael Fowlkes says the seller strike plays into the hands of eBay’s smaller competitors.
David A. Utter says the seller strike is having minimal effect, and hints that smaller sellers off eBay could be just what the company wants.
The BBC has a piece written by someone who says “although I have an account on eBay my reputation as a seller or buyer doesn’t really matter that much to me.” Er, right then.
The Guardian has a couple of interesting quotes from sellers.
