  1. So basically instead of testing out a release right before it’s ready to be rolled out – they started testing out the release at each stage during their development. The result is a final better product that comes back with fewer bugs. Wonderful news – hopefully less glitches in the future..hope they don’t patent it and sell it to some other company!!

  2. Except that the correct way to test software is to test it in a “sandbox” and NOT test it live (since you dont know the cascading effects the changes “you made”).

    As well (of course) using your sellers as unwitting beta testers is a sleazy move. Not only isnt it a nice thing to do – but live changes done “at will” can drive people crazy for no reason. Features that change or disappear or reappear can play havoc with people.

    Dont sellers deserve the right to be paid for being beta testers? Shouldnt you tell them?

    Typical eBay disdain for its sellers.
