Skype is beta testing interoperability with IP PBXs. If your company has a telephone switchboard that’s IP enabled you’ll be able to send and receive cheap calls via Skype.

Selling a high-end guitar four times on eBay but shipping cheap alternatives probably isn’t a great idea as it’s far too easy to get caught.

Advertising for a flat mate who’ll provide “extras” isn’t apparently allowed on Gumtree, at least not after it’s been live on the site for three months before someone spotted it and removed it.

eBay have removed dodgy DIY botox kits from the US site. If you’re after medical kit eBay UK is flooded with mostly offered with super fast shipping.

Finally those lovely people at eBay seem to have a few differences with the time served Ina Steiner of Auctionbytes. If eBay UK PR are reading this we promise to be nice (even when we disagree with you) in exchange for free listing fees for life (ok I’m joking, fees are so low these days it wouldn’t make much difference anyway, we’ll just carry on saying what we think šŸ˜€ )

  1. I think eBay went through and purged the original lots of swine flu masks in the US. I noticed that when one of my customers lost his listings and then I saw that there were only T-shirts available (the day before several sellers has tons of masks available). Not sure what rule is being broken on the US site but the UK masks never got touched.
